Farmer 'ignored ban'

Click to follow
A farmer previously accused of running a Belsen-style concentration camp for animals flouted a 15-year ban on keeping livestock, magistrates at Buckingham were told.

Colin French, 56, was forbidden from keeping pigs, goats, sheep and cattle after animal inspectors uncovered a catalogue of cruelty at his farm near Winslow, Buckinghamshire, in November last year.

But the court was told that he and his stockman Philip Luff, 61, who was banned from keeping animals for five years, broke the order between February and April this year.

The case continues today.
