Animal welfare campaigners today said more needs to be done to secure convictions for neglect.

It comes after the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) announced convictions for neglect and cruelty in Lancashire were down in 2013 compared to those in 2012.

Across the county the number of convictions was 69 compared to 159 the previous year.
