Father and son farmers Dennis and Andrew Hamill, of Blackstown Road, Crumlin, Co Antrim, were yesterday convicted and fined at Antrim Magistrates' Court after pleading guilty to animal welfare charges.

A DAERA vet at an abattoir examined two cattle presented by Dennis Hamill, and found that one was unable to bear weight on its left hind leg, and the other had a large red mass on its right hind foot. Both animals were caused unnecessary suffering.

Andrew Hamill was fined £600, while his father Dennis was fined £250.
