Clarissa Dickson-Wright pleads guilty to hare coursing offences

Television chef Clarissa Dickson-Wright and racehorse trainer Sir Mark Prescott have both pleaded guilty to hunting offences in North Yorkshire.

Dickson-Wright, who rose to fame after appearing in the BBC cookery programme Two Fat Ladies](http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0169499/), admitted attending two hare coursing events near Malton in March 2007. Prescott is a prolific horse race trainer based in Newmarket.

The private prosecution was brought by the International Fund for Animal Welfare, the BBC reports.

Since 2005, hare coursing has been banned in the UK but continues elsewhere in the world as a regulated and judged, competitive sport, especially in Ireland and Spain, as well as in Russia and the Western United States.
