James Gray returns to court

Amersham horse trader James Gray has returned to court after breaking his bail conditions for a second time, H&H has learned.

Gray appeared at Aylesbury Magistrates Court on 1 October after failing to keep to a curfew between 11pm and 5am.

His passport has been confiscated and he must report to police thrice weekly under strengthened bail conditions.

Gray has also been forced to start paying the £17,000 fine imposed for a previous cruelty conviction in 2006.

Gray, his wife Julie, daughters Cordelia and Jodie, and a youth who cannot be named, were found guilty of cruelty to horses at Spindles Farm in Hyde Heath in June.

All five have appealed their sentences and convictions and a hearing is due to take place at Bicester Magistrates Court from 4 January 2010.
