A DEMONSTRATION will be held at a controversial Hampshire animal testing laboratory today.

Animal rights campaigners will protest outside Wickham Laboratory as part of International Animal Rights Day.

Members of Stop Wickham Animal Testing (SWAT) will wear black at the funeral-themed march at 3.15pm.

The Winchester Road facility is the subject of a Home Office probe after an undercover worker last month claimed she had exposed evidence of animals suffering cruel deaths.

The anonymous investigator, a member of the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV), posed as a member of staff from January until October.
