A hunter who 'whipped' a protester 17 times as he charged at her won't face charges, police have confirmed.

Footage appears to show the rider whipping the he saboteur who had grabbed her horse's reins.

The woman screamed 'let go' and 'get off the horse' while other people in the crowd urged the rider not to use her mount 'as a weapon' at the hunt in Herstmonceux, East Sussex.

Sussex Police have now confirmed no action will be taken against the woman, who is believed to be a member of East Sussex and Romney Marsh Hunt.

A Brighton Hunt Saboteurs spokesman said: "She should be prosecuted as she was trying to ride people down, then when a saboteurs took her reigns to try and calm the situation she attacked him with her whip.
