Charles Carter has been a district councillor in


Norfolk for five years but he resigned overnight


after the revelations of his conduct.


His council leader said he was appalled.


In June 2015 Charles Carter, as master of the west Norfolk fox


hounds, was interviewed about the ban on fox hunting.


Having to look over one's shoulder all the time in fear of


breaching bad law is not what the country should be about.


But Charles Carter has now moved his home near York and


the Middleton Hunt, with whom he now rides,


is described as one of the most historic in north

When we last filmed Andrew, he was starting to move his feet


His progress, according to a stem cell professor


Phenomenal to say the least, the fact he can stand for an hour
