The Animal Health Trust, the veterinary research charity which employs 257 staff at its centre near Newmarket, has announced that without an injection of funds, it will be forced to close at the end of the month. 

The charity says that it had already been suffering a period of 'dire financial constraints' and the economic effects of coronavirus are now having a direct effect on funding. 

The charity's Trustees and Executive Committee is still trying to find emergency funding to try and save the organisation, failing which it will close on the 31st March.
