PROTESTERS from Binfield will be travelling to the Prime Minister's constituency this weekend to call for an end to the controversial badger cull policy.

Members of the Binfield Badger Group will be joining protestors from across the country in Maidenhead this Saturday to urge Theresa May to scrap the ongoing killing on badgers.

The policy was introduced in 2013 in a bid to stop the spread of tuberculosis among cattle, and has seen around 35,000 badgers killed, whether they are carrying the disease or not.

The peaceful, family-friendly protest will be the 43rd march against the badger cull policy to be held in the last five years.

Dominic Dyer, CEO of the Badger Trust, will be among the guest speakers at the protest, which starts at 1pm at Kidwell Park.

Carol Samuel, badger protection campaigner and local event organiser, said: "It is absolutely right that we bring the anti badger cull protest movement to the Prime Minister's constituency of Maidenhead. In the next few weeks we could see licences issued for the killing of thousands of badgers in Berkshire as a direct result of her Government’s decision to expand the badger cull in the face of huge public, scientific and political opposition."
