FOR­MER parish coun­cil­lor John Brick­nell, 47, yes­ter­day pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing a movie-clip of a woman hav­ing sex with a horse.

The footage, en­ti­tled

was down­loaded by Brick­nell, in 2007, when it was le­gal to pos­sess such images, Le­ices­ter Crown Court was told.

Such ma­te­rial, which is de­scribed in the charge as “grossly of­fen­sive, dis­gust­ing or oth­er­wise of an ob­scene character,” in­volv­ing peo­ple hav­ing sex with an­i­mals, was made il­le­gal in Jan­uary 2009.

Brick­nell, a busi­ness­man and for­mer Measham parish coun­cil­lor, of Le­ices­ter Road, Measham, near Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Le­ics, orig­i­nally de­nied the charge but changed on the day of trial.

The hear­ing was ad­journed un­til Novem­ber 21, for the prepa­ra­tion of a pre­sen­tence re­port.
