ANIMAL rights protesters are demonstrating outside a laboratory in Harrogate.

Campaigners have set up banners and posters outside the Covance site on Otley Road, in objection to its work.

Today, Tuesday, April 24, is World Lab Animal Day and campaigners from the National Anti-Vivisection Society are protesting against the laboratory’s work.

Covance uses animals in experiments to test medicines for human use, investigating therapies for Aids, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cancer, malaria and cystic fibrosis.
