Animal Rights Activists Protest in Gosport

Published: 20th September 2015 19:31

The laboratory moved to Barwell Lane three years ago which at the time drew criticism from animal rights protestors.  Since then 'Stop Wickham Animal Testing' has organised a number of protests.

Around 40 people took part in yesterday's event at the British Heart Foundation shop in the town centre.

Helen Nelson, 86, a stalwart of the group, previously dubbed a ‘granarchist’, said: "We want to impress on Gosport Borough Council it’s not a welcome move. 

"We think it’s disgraceful the council has turned around and said “welcome” just for a few jobs when people are coming from Fareham anyway. It brings Gosport into disrepute – we don’t want it to be a dumping ground."

Chris Bishop, technical director at Wickham Laboratories, said: "Gosport council recognises our contribution to the local community and we hope we will continue to contribute positively to the borough."
