The Royal Society, the national academy of science, has announced new
research into how much animal rights "terrorism" is costing
universities.

The body has written to 120 research units around Britain to try to
assess the financial implications of protecting themselves against
extremists.

While private pharmaceutical bodies have long complained of the cost of
protecting themselves against militants, nobody has investigated its
effect on public institutions.

The Royal Society said large sums were being spent to protect academic
animal research facilities, but the only evidence it has is anecdotal.
