Welshpool's farming community are being reminded to dispose of animal carcasses in the correct manner after Powys County Council prosecuted a Pantydwr man.

Richard Phillip Wilson of Pwllau, Pantydwr was prosecuted by the council's Trading Standards Service for burying carcases on his neighbour's land

Wilson pleaded guilty to two charges under the Animal By-Products (Wales) Regulations 2006 at Brecon Law Courts on Friday 10 September and was given an 18-month conditional discharge and was ordered to pay £450 prosecution costs, £150 legal costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Cllr Graham Brown, board member responsible for Public Protection, said: "The farming community must ensure that animal carcasses and by-products are disposed of in the correct manner.

"If they do not follow the legislation in place then we will investigate and take the appropriate action."
