The offence involved Cuff acting indecently with a horse in front of a group of children.

As well as the suspended sentence Cuff was also ordered to pay £200 costs and sentenced to a 30 hour rehabilitation requirement.

Detective Sergeant Tanya Mutch said: “This offence took place on one of the hottest days of the year and there were many people on Jesus Green at the time which makes this incident all the more inappropriate.”
