The Vale of Glamorgan Council has worked extremely hard, in partnership with the police and neighbouring authorities, to see Tom Price brought to justice, and we all welcome today’s verdict. His actions have caused a great deal of suffering to his horses. But, in allowing the horses to fly-graze, straying onto public roads and residential areas, he could also have risked the safety of the public.
Throughout the Vale council’s investigations, Tom Price repeatedly denied ownership of the horses and failed to cooperate with the council’s requests. Despite the terms of the ASBO, Tom Price has continued with his illegal practices and has breached the order several times. The Vale council hopes today’s verdict will act as a strong deterrent against fly-grazing practices, not only in the Vale of Glamorgan but throughout the UK.
