HUNDREDS of people turned out today (Tuesday, January 1) for two New Year’s Day hunts.

Members of the Hurworth Hunt, in North Yorkshire, met outside the Horseshoe Inn, in West Rounton, near Northallerton, before heading off on a trail.

The hunt followed a Boxing Day meet where people lined the streets of Northallerton High Street to show their support, and members raised £500 for Children in Need at a previous event.

The Zetland Hunt, which meets on the village green in Aldborough St John, near Richmond, was also out through the village of Whorlton, near Barnard Castle.
