Woosehill vet sentencing adjournedBy Jon Nurse

The case of a Woosehill vet convicted with four counts causing unnecessary suffering to animals has been adjourned for three weeks.
Awuah Ohene-Gyan will be sentenced at Reading Magistrates Court on Wednesday, July 11, after a pre-sentence report is compiled in the coming weeks.
The charges related to four animals - three dogs and a cat - treated between February and October last year when the animals were admitted to Woosehill Vets practice in Emmview Close.
The veterinary surgeon was convicted in his absence after he failed to attend a two-day trial at Reading Magistrates' Court last week.
Following the trial, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons confirmed it is currently investigating Ohene-Gyan, however a spokesman said he is still allowed to practise as a vet.
The surgery in Emmview Close has now closed and a notice on the door declares the former tenant had 14 days from April 12 to remove belongings from the building.
