Mary and Queen guitarist Brian May have joined forces to champion the current the hunting ban, despite Conservative efforts to axe the law.

Mary Glindon said: 'I told Brian, an animal welfare campaigner of note, that I will reject legislation to repeal or weaken the 2004 Hunting Act. Don't stop it now.'The 2005 Hunting Act bans the hunting of wild mammals including foxes, deer and hares with dogs. Brian May  also runs his own animal rights charity, the Save Me Trust, named after the Queen Song that he penned.

The charity campaigns for the protection of all animals against unnecessary, cruel and degrading treatment. He was appointed vice-president of animal welfare charity the RSPCA in 2012.
