Paul Wooding was sentenced at Hereford Magistrates' Court, over two offences linked to the online Neknominate craze, in an incident in a pub which happened in February.

In the video, Mr Wooding can be heard saying "this is my Neknominate" before drinking a mixture of wine, gin, vodka, rum and lemonade which the fish was in.

Mr Wooding, who was prosecuted by the RSPCA, was given an 18-month conditional discharge for causing unnecessary suffering to the fish and failing to protect it.

He was also has to pay £500 (€623) costs and a £15 (€18) victim surcharge.
