Man caught in nightlife hotspot with 'untethered pig'

A man is to appear in court after being caught with a PIG outside a nightclub.

Thomas Murphy-Hankin, 26, was arrested after being found shouting and screaming in the street in Norwich.

He was found to have a pig with him, which is illegal as it was running loose.

Murphy-Hankin was arrested at around 10am on Wednesday before being charged with having a pig untethered and loose on a public highway.

He is also accused of a public order offence and having a dog dangerously out of control in a public place.

Murphy-Hankin, of no fixed abode, is due to appear before Norwich Magistrates later today (thu).

Sergeant Mark Shepherd, community sergeant for the Norwich East Safer Neighbourhood Team, took to social media following the incident.

He tweeted: “A male has been remanded in custody after committing a public order offence, having his dogs dangerously out of control and having his pig untethered on #PrinceOfWalesRd #Noriwch (sic) #Policing @NorfolkPolice @NorwichPoliceUK #JobLikeNoOther.”


Since you’re here …

It may worry you that most of our press is owned by a handful of offshore billionaires. News is increasingly biased, corrupt, or agenda driven.

More worrying is the staggering decline in independent, investigative journalism. It costs a lot to produce, so many publications facing an uncertain future can no longer afford to fund it.

With nobody to hold the rich and powerful to account, or report on the issues that don't fit with their 'narrative', your help is needed.

You can help support free, independent journalism for as little as 50p. Every penny we collect from donations supports vital investigative and independent journalism.
