The duo were said to have rode out in full hunting attire with hounds to Burley on the Hill, in Rutland.

During lockdown hunts are told to exercise their hounds only from their kennels and not in open countryside, to limit spread of coronavirus.

Evidence of the breach by the Kirby Bellars-based hunt was sent to the Hunt Saboteurs Association in videos and letters. An investigation is being carried out by the Masters of Foxhounds Association and Leicestershire Police is also aware of the incident.
