Campaigners protesting against the killing of animals for sport have taken to the streets of London on the first day of the grouse shooting season.
Demonstrators marched through central London to Downing Street, calling for an end to badger culling and driven grouse shooting and urging the Government to keep the ban on fox hunting with hounds.
Ahead of the protest Springwatch presenter Chris Packham, who joined crowds of people in the capital, condemned such activities as a "dying business".
Those taking part carried banners stating "Kill the Cull" while some wore fox and badger masks.
They chanted "Save our badgers, stop the cull", "Save our foxes, keep the ban" and "There's no excuse for animal abuse".
The "Make Badger Culling & Hunting History" protest was headed up by Care2 along with the Badger Trust, the League Against Cruel Sports and the Born Free Foundation.
Protesters gathered in Cavendish Square at 1.30pm and marched to the Prime Minister's Downing Street home.
In its weekly weekend travel information bulletin, Transport for London had warned of delays for motorists and buses due to a march with road closures on Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Haymarket, Pall Mall East, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall.
