A group of protestors from animal rights pressure group, Animal Justice Project, spent last Saturday on the roof of Darlington Farmers Auction Mart, the site of the Beef Expo event organised by the National Beef Association (NBA).

The group, which wants to see an end of animal agriculture, targeted the flagship event of the NBA.
