Thirty-one cats were found locked up in “appalling” conditions at Judy Shaw and Peter Hardy’s Unstone paddocks – including a static caravan covered in a deep layer of mould-covered faeces.

While 28 horses were found standing on deep faeces in makeshift wooden pens – some with mobility issues due to deformed hooves.

The couple, from Dorset Close, Brimington, admitted 21 Animal Welfare Act charges and were fined £1,200 each.
