Animal-rights group stages protest against pig-farm plans
AN animal rights group brought its mascot, Piggles, to Derbyshire to protest against controversial plans for a giant pig farm.
Yesterday's protest came as Derbyshire County Council announced it would still take comments on the Midland Pig Producers plans despite the consultation period having closed.
More than 2,000 objections have already been received.
The Burton-based firm wants to house up to 25,000 animals on the 28-hectare site, west of Woodland Drive, Foston.
