A man is awaiting sentencing after being found guilty of having sex with a goat. He was spotted by passengers on a packed train which stopped at signals opposite an allotment.

Stephen Hall, a 23-year-old chef, "lassoed" the goat with his belt and – then rammed it. Horrified commuters used their mobile phones to contact the police. OK, so there's not much in the way of an IT angle here, but some stories need writing.

Hall who says he is gay admitted the offence with the female goat but claims he’s never done anything like this before.

A senior British Transport policeman commented that he didn’t think the nanny goat was too upset by the ordeal but added that it is "difficult to tell". Goats are like that. Never can tell what they’re thinking.
