England's traditional Boxing Day hunt

Huntsman Mike Smith from the Avon Vale Hunt, joins supporters outside the Red Lion pub who have gathered to watch their traditional Boxing Day hunt, on December 26, 2012 in Lacock, England. As hundreds of hunts met today, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson claimed that moves to repeal the ban on hunting with dogs in England and Wales may not happen in 2013, although he insisted it was still the government's intention to give MPs a free vote on lifting the ban.
