Christmas shoppers got a surprise as they encountered a nearly naked woman lying on a giant Christmas plate in the Belfast city centre.

Complete with to-scale cutlery, brussel sprouts and gravy the message is to get people to "try to relate to who's on your plate. Go Vegan".

Passers-by stopped to take photographs of the woman who was lying outside Castle Court on Wednesday

The stunt is in a bid to encourage passers-by to consider that turkeys "feel pain just as humans do".

PETA Director Elisa Allen: “PETA is encouraging people to extend the holiday spirit of peace and goodwill to all by leaving animals off their plates this Christmas.

“Thanks to the array of mock meats available, it’s easier than ever to enjoy a festive meal packed with all the flavour but none of the cruelty.”

This comes just a couple of days after a similar protest happened in Dublin.
