More than 300 people turned out to march in protest against the closure of an animal rescue centre.

More than 300 people turned out to march in protest against the closure of an animal rescue centre.

Felixstowe's Blue Cross Animal Centre is under threat of closure as the charity tries to save money.

Blue Cross has said its centres would be wound down over the next few months.

However, campaigners are furious at the move.

They believe the groundswell of support for The Evening Star's Save the Blue Cross campaign is irresistible proof that the charity has made a huge error.

See The Evening Star for full coverage, pictures and reaction to the march.
