IN VOTING to allow performing circus animals on their land, Saffron Walden Town Councillors have voted for cruelty and ignorance.

One day people will look back on this form of 'entertainment' as they do on the dark ages of freak side shows. To take children to watch the subjugation of animals sends completely the wrong message and is an insult to their intelligence.

Councillors should hold their heads in shame.
