A man has been banned from all farms where animals are kept after admitting having sexual intercourse with a goat.

Robert Newman, 23, will be sentenced next month after pleading guilty at North West Wiltshire Magistrates' Court in Chippenham to a charge of having sex with a living animal contrary to the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

Newman, of Potterne Road, Devizes, Wiltshire, had originally denied the offence which took place in April this year at Devizes and was due to stand trial but later pleaded guilty.

Before he is sentenced on September 12th Newman must obey a curfew between 7pm and 7am and is also not allowed to enter any land where farm animals are kept.
