Disgraced greyhound trainer Tom Noble to face court

DISGRACED greyhound trainer Thomas Adrian Noble will face trial after being charged earlier this year with a host of fresh charges.

Mr Noble, 69, was charged in March, 2016 with breaching his bail conditions after he allegedly continued to trial dogs on his training track at Churchable.

Police claim Mr Noble removed police surveillance cameras from neighbouring properties which allegedly captured him operating a training lure arm six times between May 2015 and March 2016.

He was also charged with stealing, wilful damage and trespass.

Mr Noble's legal representative told Ipswich Magistrates Court on Wednesday he planned to defend the charges and asked for a trial date to be set.

The matter was listed for June 29.

Mr Noble pleaded guilty last year to 15 counts of serious animal cruelty following the airing in 2015 of sickening livebaiting practices.

The live baiting offences occurred on numerous dates between August 21 and October 12, 2014 at his Churchable training facility.

It included the use of possums, piglets and rabbits with the intention to cause severe and prolonged suffering.

Mr Noble will be sentenced on those charges in Ipswich District Court at a future date.
