Men admit cruelty to pigs

Two men from Norfolk have admitted animal cruelty after an undercover investigation revealed them beating pigs with plastic pipes and a metal bar.

Geoffrey Towell, 54, and James Dove, 27, were exposed hitting the animals on Harling Farm in an investigation by animal rights group Animal Equality.

The case was adjourned for sentencing until next month so probation reports can be prepared.
