THE national Counter Terrorism Unit is being called in after animal rights activists targeted South Lakeland food outlets. Activists are being blamed for vandal attacks on Cartmel restaurant L'Enclume and a farm owned by Peter Gott -- friend of TV chef Jamie Oliver.
Police believe the activists are demonstrating about the use of wild boar and foie gras in the food industry.
The national Counter Terrorism Unit has now been called in to help with the investigation.
In total four premises were targeted either late on Thursday or in the early hours of yesterday.
Those hit included the Cartmel-based Michelin starred restaurant where a wall was spray painted with the words "foie gras".
