Stuart Tate of Ethelbert Road, Orpington appeared at Bromley Magistrates Court last Thursday accused of causing unnecessary suffering to animals.

The court hear how RSPCA inspector Sonya Gray found the dead chickens and a dead Jack Russell in his garden as well as seven live dogs and chickens living in appalling conditions.

Tate was also banned for life from keeping animals.
