A vegan who failed to deal with a mouse infestation at her home because of her ethical beliefs has been fined by a court.

Margaret Manzoni, 73, of St Osyth in Essex, "considered the mice her pets" and "said they would not go to her neighbours because she looked after them".

Tendring District Council prosecuted the pensioner for a second time after she did not comply with a previous order made in April.

At a hearing at Colchester Magistrates' Court this month, Manzoni was told that while the court "respected her beliefs as an ethical vegan, others saw mice as vermin", the council said.
