Man accused of trying to have sex with sheep next to Tottenham Hotspurs training ground
Spurs’ Premier League stars were reportedly using the new state-of-the-art facility at the time
A man has appeared in court accused of trying to have sex with a sheep next to Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground.
Paul Lovell, 61, faces one charge of indecent exposure and another of outraging public decency after he was allegedly caught with the animal on 4 September.
The Evening Standard reported that the man was found not far from where the club’s Premier League stars were training at the time – though a number of the team’s best players would have been away on international duty.
The state-of-the-art facility on Hotspur Way in Enfield, North London has only just been purpose-built for the club, and includes an extensive nature area with hundreds of planted trees and shrubs next to a pond.
Mr Lovell, from Magpie Close, Enfield, appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and was accused of committing a sexual act with a sheep and trying to encourage the sheep to perform a sexual act with him.
He denied the charges, and opted for the case to be moved to Wood Green Crown Court, where Mr Lovell will face a plea and case management hearing on 2 October.
He has been released on bail with the condition that he does not return to Whitewebbs Lane or Archers Wood in Enfield.
