Blackmail charge.

A WOMAN appeared in court charged with blackmailing the owners of a guinea pig farm which was at the centre of a hate campaign by animal activists.

Madeline Buckler, aged 24, is accused of three counts of blackmail and one of attempted blackmail relating to letters sent to owners and associates of Darley Oaks Farm in Newchurch, Staffordshire, in November.

Buckler, of Leicester Street, Wolverhampton, appeared before magistrates in Burton-on-Trent.

She is accused of sending the letters to David Hall and Partners, which operated the farm, along with a number of others connected to the breeding centre.

She was given bail and the case was adjourned to Stafford Crown Court on Monday.
