Popstar Will Young has handcuffed himself to the gates of Cambridgeshire puppy breeding facility MBR Acres in support of “Camp Beagle”. 

The 42-year-old, who scored several number one hits after winning Pop Idol in 2002, was pictured on the group Facebook page holding a campaign poster sitting handcuffed to the gates of the site near RAF Wyton. 

It comes as protesters demand the release of some 2,000 beagle puppies being reared for testing. 

A post on the page read: “Breaking news! Will Young has handcuffed himself to the gates of Camp Beagle! #freethembrbeagles” 

One person added: “Absolutely Brilliant, well done Will, what a hero!”
