ANIMAL rights campaigners have claimed responsibility for two petrol bombs which exploded at an Oxfordshire farm.

The incendiary devices caused thousands of pounds of damage at Field Farm, Appleton, at about 11pm on Sunday, May 6.

An anonymous posting on animal rights website Bite Back said the farm was attacked because it is involved in transporting animals to their deaths and raining animals to be killed.

Police are now appealing for information from anyone who saw the arsonists or has any information to contact them on 08458 505505 or, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
