The Leicester Mercury reports that a hunt saboteur has been convicted by a jury in Leicester of using edited footage to falsely bolster his claim that a farmer had assaulted him on the farmer's land.

David Graham, 35, was found guilty unanimously of perverting the course of justice by using video evidence which misrepresented what had happened.

The video was edited on a loop sequence incorrectly showing the farmer repeatedly kicking out.

Graham, of the West Midlands Hunt Saboteur group, was given a 12 month jail sentence, suspended for two years, with 100 hours of unpaid work.

He was ordered to pay £1,000 costs and placed on a seven year restraining order, banning any contact with the Milner brothers or going to their farm.

The Leicester Mercury has the full story.
