AR Campaigner Won Top Prize for Academic Work

Sheffield animal rights campaigner Dr Dan Lyons has won a top prize for his academic work against animal experiments.

Dr Lyons, aged 35, of Whitwell Lane, Stocksbridge, has won the national Political Studies Association's prize for the best thesis on Government and Public Administration.

The Sheffield University student, and Green Party councillor on Stocksbridge Town Council, had earlier won the Department of Politics's prize for the outstanding thesis of 2007. The thesis used leaked confidential documents to argue that the British Government is turning a blind eye to many experiments on animals in the UK.
