Vegan protesters 'blockade' four dairy production sites after targeting shops

Vegan protesters have targeted four dairy production sites across England today aiming to ‘shut down’ distribution of milk products.

It comes the day after fellow protesters from Animal Rebellion staged sit-down protests in dairy aisles of high-end supermarkets to try and stop shoppers buying milk.

Activists went to three sites operated by Müller this morning, as well as to the UK’s biggest dairy distribution centre operated by Arla Foods.

They spread a banner across a road to try and stop distribution of products, and were also pictured climbing up onto milk silos and trucks.

It is part of planned ‘disruptive action’ this month by the group, who are demanding an ‘urgent and immediate transition to a plant-based food system’.

Protester Steve Bone, a father and photographer from Thorpe-le-Soken who climbed a milk silo at the Arla site in Aylesbury, said: ‘Along with over 30 brave individuals, I am defying a High Court Injunction and risking prison to send a message to the UK Government that we need a plant-based future to restore the British countryside and all the wonderful nature lost to animal farming.
