Sam Whitehead and Naomi Mulligan-Ward organised the event.

Naomi said: ‘This is the third time we have organised the Cube of Truth and we get good responses from the public.

‘It is about showing what happens in the meat and diary industry and raising awareness of the vegan lifestyle.’

Sam said their protest is a peaceful one although some of their members wear masks. She said: ‘We wear the masks because it is about our message, not us as individuals.’
