A man who has denied attempting to have sex with a sheep will appear in court today.

Paul Lovell, of Magpie Close, Enfield, faces three charges: behaving in an indecent manner by trying to commit a sexual act with a sheep and attempting to encourage the sheep to perform a sexual act, and intentionally exposing his genitals in public.

He denied these when he appeared at Wood Green Crown Court in November

The 61-year-old was arrested on September 4, 2013 after allegedly being caught with the animal in Whitewebbs Lane, Enfield, close to Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground.

He will appear at Wood Green court in Lordship Lane.
