Animal rights campaigners held a vocal protest against the alleged sale of fur clothes inside Harvey Nichols in Leeds.

About eight members of the so-called Heartless Harvey Nichols group walked into the Briggate department store brandishing pictures of foxes they claimed were being killed for their hides.

A video showed one of the protestors giving a speech outlining their objections.

He was filmed shouting: “It’s not fashion it’s cruelty.”

They spent about two minutes before being escorted outside by shop security staff.

Spokesman Luke Steele said: “In the run-up to the festive season we vow to take centre stage with this issue and call on customers to vote with their feet.

“Our message to Harvey Nichols is clear: fur is not fashion, it is cruelty.”
