Two photographers arrested for breaching cordons during the recent foot-and-mouth restrictions have appeared in court.

Philip Hollis, 44, from Kingston upon Thames, south-west London, and James Purkiss face a maximum six month prison sentence and a £5000 fine under the Section 27 of the Animal Health Act for alleged offences on the 4th August this year.

Purkiss is also known by the name Jay Kaycappa, reports the BBC. His age has been reported variously as 32 or 37, and different media organisations give his home address as either Fareham or Swindon.

Both photographers’ cameras were seized following their arrest. They are accused of contravening a restriction notice put in place near Normandy, Surrey. The case was adjourned until the 26th September.
