Gas company admits error in £5k grant to League Against Cruel Sports 

The spokesman added that the fund has “always been non-political in its nature and Calor regrets any offence that this oversight caused”.
But campaigners warned that they would continue to lobby until the company confirmed that the money has been withdrawn. 
Tim Bonner, Chief Executive of the Countryside Alliance said “We sincerely hope, that as the rules have not been complied with, that this funding is withdrawn completely. ”
 He said that the League was “not a group that organisations such as Calor should be blindly giving money to or associating with.”
The League responded by saying that though they did not actually keep deer as they are wild animals and claimed their management of the sanctuary has actually seen disease levels among the animals fall.
Chris Luffingham, Deputy CEO of the League Against Cruel Sports, said: “We submitted our application in good faith, and we are dismayed to see the level of vitriol levelled at Calor by a small section of the rural community that see the League as a threat.”
