An animal welfare charity will be writing to the organisers of Latitude Festival after they dyed a flock of sheep pink.

The music and arts festival, held in Henham Park, Suffolk, posted a video on Twitter showing the fluorescent sheep, which angered social media users.

RSPCA have now said they will contact the festival to discuss the incident.
