ANIMAL rights extremists have attacked mobile phone masts in the latest escalation of their campaign against a medical research facility at Oxford University.

Activists cut the wiring and wrecked the cooling systems on transmitters owned by Vodafone. The company is being targeted for providing money to projects at Oxford, although the work does not involve animals.

Two incidents, publicised on an animal rights website, are being investigated by police.

Anti-vivisection campaigners have already forced a 16-month delay in construction of the animal research laboratory by intimidating a previous building contractor.

Vodafone was one of almost 100 donors to Oxford that received letters from the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) warning them to cut ties with the university. The letters said that unless funding ceased, the homes of directors and employees would be attacked and offices vandalised.
