Deer on a farm "dropped like flies" through disease and malnutrition, a court was told. Around 400 died in seven months at Tremoorland Farm, Cardinham, Cornwall.

The manager of the 220-acre farm, Robert Jasper, 40, pleaded guilty at Bodmin magistrates to causing unnecessary suffering. He earlier admitted falsifying records, and was fined a total of pounds 500. The prosecution was brought after a police and RSPCA investigation.

The farm was run by Galtee Deer Care of Cork, southern Ireland.
