PROTESTORS rallied outside Wickham Laboratories arguing against animal testing.

Members of Stop Wickham Animal Testing gathered at Wickham Laboratories in Barwell Lane, Gosport and at the firm’s site in Winchester Road, Wickham yesterday.

Jeanette McClunan, 57, from the Meon Valley, was joined by five protestors in Gosport, while eight people went to Wickham.

She said: ‘We consider there is no need to use animals in experimentation any more.

‘We should be advancing, moving on, with alternate methods.

The government is meant to be promoting alternate methods which they don’t seem to be doing.

‘I feel science hasn’t advanced through animal experimentation.’
