Father on girls murder bid charge
Man arriving at court
The man appeared before magistrates on Friday
A father who allegedly jumped into a flooded quarry with his two young daughters has appeared in court charged with two counts of attempted murder.

The 35-year-old man was rescued from the Bryn Hall quarry near Bethesda, north Wales, with his daughters on Wednesday.

None was seriously injured, but all suffered the effects of hypothermia.

The man, who cannot be named, appeared before Llangefni magistrates on Friday and was remanded in custody.

In a four-minute hearing, he spoke only to give his name and date of birth.

The case was adjourned to Caernarfon Crown Court on 6 January.
