A man has appeared in court over a string of offences linked to hunting and drugs.

Alan Douglas, 51, of Beech Avenue, Bilsborrow, denies offences that date back more than a year.

He pleaded not guilty to two counts of removing a deer carcass at Pye Bridge Farm, Hale, near Carnforth, on or around October 17, 2014.

On the same day it is alleged the 51-year-old intentionally killed a female roe deer during the prescribed closed season.

Douglas entered not guilty pleas to the charges at Lancaster Magistrates’ Court.

He denies three further Class A drug charges. The case was adjourned to February 4.
