ST ALBANS Anne Main has joined forces with a giant chicken in a battle against factory farming.
St Albans Friends of the Earth and their feathered friend met Mrs Main to discuss the environmental impact of factory farming, which is responsible for nearly 20 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
The Food Chain Campaign, organised by Friends of the Earth, is calling on the Government to revolutionise the way we produce meat and dairy by asking them to stop using taxpayers money to fund big business-led factory farms.
Mrs Main, who has been bombarded with Friends of the Earth postcards from her constituents demanding that the Government take action on the lack of food sustainability in the UK, said that she fully supports the campaign.

St Albans Friends of the Earth member Amanda Yorwerth said: "It's great that local people have an appetite for planet-friendly food and farming and to have Mrs Main on our side is an added bonus. Our work with the public shows that people are continually surprised at how big an effect the meat and dairy industry has on the planet.
