Live Exporters abandon Shoreham, but move to Dover

7th June 1995

Live exports of calves for continental veal crates (a practice banned in the UK) and sheep for slaughter in continental slaughter houses have just been halted at Shoreham. People have been demonstrating there since Jan 2 this year.

ITF (International Traders Ferry), the firm responsible for the trade from Shoreham, no longer find it profitable to use the port, due to the new, shorter, export route opened at Dover after this year's earlier high court ruling.

Unfortunately, ITF have moved to Dover, in their latest attempts to make profits out of animal suffering. They can be sure that they will be followed by the protesters until these evil exports are banned.
