Three-month delay for Huntingdon accounts

Huntingdon Life Sciences has been given another three months to hand in its accounts for 2003, as the company searches for a way to protect its auditor from protestors.

The Cambridgeshire-based laboratory, notorious for testing on animals, now has until the end of April to hand it is annual report to Companies House, which had been due in today. The company has not submitted any UK accounts to record since Big Four firm Deloitte resigned as its auditor nearly two years ago.

Deloitte was forced to stand down after a sustained two-week protest campaign by animal rights group Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty, in which key staff were targeted for abuse and some offices were damaged.

SHAC has promised the same treatment will be given to any auditor that takes up the audit of HLS.
