Last hunt meets as supporters vow to continue

The last ever legal hunts will go ahead today as countryside campaigners vowed to continue their 300-year old tradition after the ban takes effect from midnight tonight.
The Duke of Beaufort's Hunt, which dates back to the 17th Century, and The Bilsdale Hunt, in Ravensthorpe Manor, Boltby, near Thirsk, North Yorks, will be among Britain's last legal hunting meetings.

Some 200 hunt members on horseback, their hounds and another 200 foot followers are expected to meet at 10.45am in Hullavington, Wiltshire, for the Duke of Beaufort's Hunt.
