ANIMAL campaigners dressed up as cartoon characters including Bugs Bunny and Scooby Doo to raise awareness of alternatives to animal testing.

They held a display promoting World Week for Laboratory Animals outside Evans women's clothing store, Bromley town centre, on Saturday, April 19.

Jan Yarker, 61, founder of animal welfare group Passive Pressure, said: "The event was an opportunity for me to talk to people about alternatives to animal research.

"Deliberately causing animals harm is wrong, so I have always been ethically opposed to animal testing.

"But like most people I haven't always been aware of what alternatives there are."

The event was supported by Absolutely Fabulous actress Joanna Lumley, who is patron of the Dr Hadwen Trust charity - the UK's leading non-animal medical research charity.
