A South Tottenham man denied possessing extreme pornographic images of live animals.

Lee Morris, 36, of Seven Sisters Road, is accused of possessing "extreme pornographic images portraying an act of intercourse" with a chicken, a cow, and a dog.

He entered a plea of not guilty to the charge at Chelmsford Crown Court this morning. 

Mr Morris, a mechanic, was originally arrested by Essex Police in June for conspiring to steal motor vehicles.

While in custody, Mr Morris’s phone was confiscated and police allegedly discovered three extreme pornographic images stored on it.

Judge Christopher Ball QC granted Morris unconditional bail until December, when his next hearing will take place.
