A north Cornwall farmer who wanted to be a UKIP MP has admitted a string of animal welfare charges.

David Evans has been deselected as the candidate for Camborne and Redruth.

Bodmin Magistrates heard more than 100 sheep were found dead on his farm in Week St Mary and they were not disposed of properly.

Others were emaciated, lame or didn't have clean, dry bedding.

The hearing has been adjourned until December, when the 71 year old will be sentenced for six charges.

A judge has warned him he could face jail.

Lawyers said Mr Evans was struggling to cope with ill health and during one of the wettest winters on record.

UKIP says it is "disappointed" not to have been informed and a spokesperson said: "David Evans has been withdrawn as a candidate whilst UKIP continues to investigate."
