ANIMAL rights activists were pelted with eggs from a passing vehicle during a protest in Barkingside on Sunday.

Placard-waving protesters from Essex Animal Freedom had gathered by the Great British Circus in Forest Road to campaign against the use of wild animals in the shows, run by Martin Lacey.

One protester received a cut hand, as eggs were thrown from a vehicle passing the entrance on the final day of the circus.
