A man has been jailed for six weeks after riding a horse 'at speed' in Middlesbrough.


John Ginty was found to be in breach of a court order - after being ordered not to "leave any horse'' on a piece of land owned by a housing association near Middlesbrough.

He was found to have breached the order by leaving horses on the land and "riding a horse at speed''.

Detail emerged in a ruling published by a judge following a hearing at Middlesbrough County Court.

The ruling gave no background to the case, but it indicated that housing association Erimus had complained that Ginty was in contempt of a court order made in June, and the judge had agreed and jailed him.
