A Llandeilo man has pleaded not guilty to owning pornographic images of someone having sex with live animals and making an indecent image of a minor.

Gareth Hywel Williams, of Maes Elfryn, denied the alleged offences, which are believed to have all taken place on November 1 last year, when he appeared before Llanelli Magistrates Court on June 15.

The 55-year-old denied seven charges; one concerned a chicken, two of a horse, three of a dog and another of a pony.

Williams also denied making an indecent photograph of a child.

He will now remain in custody until he appears at Swansea Crown Court on July 17.
