A 66-year-old man in the UK has pleaded guilty to having sex with a horse and a donkey.

Joseph Squires appeared at the Leicester Crown Court charged with a serious sexual offence against a donkey in 1999 and a horse in 2004.

He is also accused of criminal damage to the animals.

Squires was due to stand trial but pleaded guilty to all four charges.

His lawyer Amar Mehta sought bail and told the court Squires was of previous good character.

"The defendant does not have a stable address although he says his daughter can provide an address," he said.

Squires was refused bail and remanded in custody before being sentenced in May.
