Hunt supporters appear in court on robbery and wounding charges at Vale of Belvoir meet

Monday 23 October 2017

Two men appeared in court today (Monday) charged with robbery and wounding/inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent, in an incident believed to have taken place during a meeting of the Belvoir Hunt.

George Grant (56) and 25-year-old Thomas Grant, both of Belvoir, faced the charges in the dock at Leicester Magistrates Court.

Leicestershire Police said the suspected offences relate to an incident which took place on land off Tofts Lane, near Stathern, on March 12 last year.

A spokesperson said a 58-year-old man sustained injuries which required hospital treatment and a second man, aged 46, was also injured.

The complainants in the case were both employed as investigators with the League Against Cruel Sports.

The men are due to appear at Leicester Crown Court on November 20 to face the charges.

  1. Thank you. I hope the court case in Leicester has the right outcome and that the despicable individual who attacked and injured the 58 year old man, to the extent that he needed hospital treatment and injured another, aged 46 is given a lengthy prison sentence plus has to pay compensation to his victims.
