A Vale of Glamorgan horse trader who has thousands of Gypsy Cob ponies has been found guilty of 57 animal welfare and cruelty charges.

Tom Price, 48, from Wick, was convicted of causing unnecessary suffering to 18 horses by magistrates in Cardiff.

The animals were found at five different south Wales locations, including 12 "left to die" in a Bridgend barn.

He will be sentenced in July, following the RSPCA prosecution.
