Vegans take protest into city store; NEWS WIRE.

BEMUSED shoppers watched a group of militant vegans protest in Tesco Metro, in Liverpool city centre, in a bid to stop people buying meat.

The group, led by Jake Jordan, from Warrington, marched into the store carrying placards and blasting the sound of animals being killed.

Jake, 20, led the group to the site of what he called an "animal holocaust", by chanting down the "death aisle."

In an internet video, the group can be seen standing with placards in front of packaged chicken, beef and pork, while shoppers look on bemused.

Sounds of animals being slaughtered are then played down the aisle, causing store security to escort the small group out of the supermarket.

Jake, who is studying nutrition at college, has been campaigning about veganism for the past three years.

He said: "We decided the most effective way to get our message across was to play the sound of the slaughterhouse, so people could understand where their meat comes from."

After being booted out of the store, the group were not dissuaded from their mission, and continually played the recording from the slaughterhouse, causing small children to cry.
