Animal rights activists linked to Extinction Rebellion have blockaded a Manchester slaughterhouse this afternoon.

Activists locked themselves onto coffins outside the entrance of Tulip pig slaughterhouse and a banner was laid outside the entrance which read 'ANIMAL FARMING = PANDEMICS & CLIMATE CRISIS'.

Demonstrators also climbed on the roof of the Pilgrim's Pride Ltd's slaughterhouse as part of the Animal Rebellion protest.

The group, which is aligned with Extinction Rebellion, said they took part in the demonstration to 'stand against the many injustices which face non-human animals, the workers, the climate and those that choose to take similar action.'
