We are aware of the recent allegations made to the police in relation to a webinar hosted by The Hunting Office, hunting’s governing body. Whilst these allegations are being examined by the police and Crown Prosecution Service to determine if any criminal offences have taken place, we have suspended trail hunting on National Park Authority land.
This will include the suspension of the licence issued to the Blencathra Foxhounds. We will consider any action we need to take once the investigation is complete.
