The son of British rock legend BRYAN FERRY has been charged with attacking and robbing two female animal-rights campaigners.

Otis Ferry is accused of wrestling a video camera from the women as they filmed the 25-year-old fox hunting - a sport which is now illegal in the U.K.

The pair claim Ferry aggressively attacked them after spotting them with a camera - reportedly smashing the women's car window and hitting them with a radio antenna after snapping it from the roof of the vehicle.

Ferry then sped off when the police were called to the scene.

The women, who had been on the look-out for illegal fox hunting in the Gloucestershire, England countryside, had to be treated for bruising and shock after the alleged incident.

A representative for Gloucestershire police says, "We can confirm one man has been charged in connection with this incident."

Ferry, an avid supporter of fox hunting, will appear in Cheltenham court to face charges of robbery and common assault next month.
