A woman who lied that her pet dog had been illegally seized by the local council has been convicted of animal cruelty.

Claire Lines launched an online petition and gave media interviews after Mid and East Antrim Borough Council took one of her Staffordshire bull terriers into care because it had suffered numerous injuries.

It later emerged that the 38-year-old, from the Circular Road in Larne, had been unable to prevent her two Staffies, Jack and Jock, from fighting.
