Pigs taken away from Asbo farmer

Farmer Brian Hagan farms near Fakenham, Norfolk
More than 100 pigs have been removed by the RSPCA from a farmer who received an Anti-social Behaviour Order (Asbo) because his animals kept escaping.

The pigs were taken from Brian Hagan's farm near Fakenham, Norfolk, on Friday.

The 62-year-old was given an Asbo last year after neighbours told a court his pigs had wandered off his land and damaged their crops and plants.

A RSPCA spokeswoman said: "A man has been questioned in relation to a seizure of a large number of pigs."

She said: "He has been interviewed and a file of evidence will now be prepared and submitted to the RSPCA's prosecutions department for consideration."

The Asbo given to Mr Hagan was later lifted.
