A PRISON warder faces jail af­ter a court heard she kept a stag­ger­ing SIXTY col­lie dogs in ap­palling con­di­tions.

Amanda Ham­mond kept cons at HMP Wood­hill in Mil­ton Keynes un­der lock and key by day but re­turned home at night to scenes of shock­ing filth and degra­da­tion.

The 66-year-old’s five bed­room home, which has no run­ning water or elec­tric­ity, was found caked in dog ex­cre­ment leav­ing the floors “spongy and wet” un­der­foot.

Ham­mond’s dog hell­hole was only dis­cov­ered when sev­eral of her col­lie dogs es­caped and killed sheep in a nearby field.

At mag­is­trates’ court in Ayles­bury she ad­mit­ted ill-treat­ing dogs and will be sen­tenced in Oc­to­ber.
