A man from Ulleskelf has been banned from keeping horses after what one RSPCA inspector described as the worst case of malnutrition she had ever seen.

Leeds magistrates told Philip Ewen he could not own horses for seven years after the 62-year-old admitted causing unnecessary suffering to animals.

The court heard Ewen kept thoroughbred geldings Bobb and Sonnie in a field off Mill Lane in South Milford.
