A MEDIA personality and activist will be holding a guest talk at Teesside University.

Businesswoman Heather Mills will be at the University on July 4 from 12pm to 1pm to talk about her plant-based diet and the effects it has on health and agriculture.

Ms Mills, CEO of plant-based company VBites, has recently purchased a third factory in the North-East, near Newcastle, and is hoping to expand awareness of plant-based living.

Tickets for the free event, organised by Teesside University and Darlington and Teesside Animal Rights Activists, can be booked online.

The hour's talk will be held in the Stephenson Lecture Theatre in the Stephenson Building, Middlesbrough.
