Three convicted over dog fighting

Three people have been convicted of a series of offences, following a BBC investigation into one of Europe's largest dog-fighting syndicates.

Claire Parker, 44, from Lincolnshire, Mohammed Farooq, 33, from Birmingham, and a 17-year-old boy were convicted at Lincoln Magistrates' Court.

The RSPCA said it was one of the biggest cases of dog-fighting it had prosecuted.

Claire Marshall reports.
