Millions of animals suffer and die every year in experiments that are carried out inside British laboratories.
Most animal experiments are carried out for medical research.
Many are also carried out to test the safety of a wide range of products and chemicals such as medicines, pesticides, household cleaners and food additives.
The experiments often cause terrible suffering to the animals.
Tests carried out on different species often give different results. This means that the results from animal experiments can be misleading and unreliable when applied to people.
