ACC CONF: ACC COMES OUT AGAINST HUNTS AND BULL BARS

Motions against organised hunts and 'bull bars' of road vehicles were agreed at today's executive meeting of the Association of County Councils.

ACC Conservative leader Simon Day opposed the executive's decision to pursue the case for banning organised hunting with dogs on council land.

He said hunting was an issue individual councils should decide on.

The executive also supported a request from Cleveland CC for a stand on farm vehicle 'bull bars'.

The council said bull bars - designed for off-road use - were becoming a fashion accessory for 'trendy' city drivers.

Such bumper bars were a 'menace' to other road users and should be banned from public highways, the council said.

Cleveland wants legislation introduced making it compulsory to fit detachable bull bars which drivers can remove when they travel onto public roads.
