A Manor Park man will be sentenced today for attending a cockfight that left blood and feathers spattered up the walls of a house in Redbridge.

Akhtar Hussain, 47, of Greenhill Grove, was convicted of being present at an animal fight involving cockerels after police officers uncovered shocking evidence of cockfighting during a visit to a house in Seven Kings on January 2.

That premises was the home of Mohammed Asab, 51, who was found guilty of causing an animal fight to take place, keeping and training an animal for use in connection with an animal fight, and keeping premises for use for an animal fight.

A 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, Mohamed Arif, 43, of Fairfield Road, Ilford; Mehtab Ahmed, 41, of Celebration Way, Chingford; and Altaf Hussain, 54, of Parkstone Road, Coventry, were all found guilty of being present at an animal fight involving cockerels.

The teenager was granted conditional discharge and a fine of £180.

The men will be sentenced at Barkingside Magistrates Court this afternoon.
