Paul Clarke faces four charges relating to indecent images of children

A man has been charged with two counts of interfering with badger setts ahead of a hunt meeting.

Dean Jones, 44, of Cottesmore Road, Ashwell, will appear at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on July 22 charged with blocking a badger sett and causing a dog to enter it on November 29, 2014. The incident happened hours before the Cottesmore Hunt set off from a meet nearby.

The charges were made after evidence was submitted to police by the League Against Cruel Sports.

Interfering with badger setts has been illegal since 2004.
