He was remanded in custody on Monday and is expected to return to court on 21 October to enter a plea.

Soldiers remember bomb blast victims

A memorial ceremony to mark the 20th anniversary of an IRA bomb blast that killed four soldiers and seven horses was held in London on Saturday.

Soldiers and relatives laid wreaths in Hyde Park to remember those who died on 20 July, 1982.

A car bomb packed with nails exploded as a troop from the Household Cavalrymen of the Blues and Royals rode past on its way to the Changing of the Guard.

It will be the last time the ceremony is held on the day itself - in future tributes will be paid during the general Household Cavalrymen memorial day.


Man denies stalking news presenter

A Cambridge graduate has denied stalking a BBC news presenter he met at university 13 years earlier.

Mr Vines, of Milson Road, west Kensington, London, was remanded in custody to appear before the same court on 25 July.

The charge relates to allegations of harassment over a period of years after Mr Vines met Mrs Maitlis, now 31, when they were both students at Queens College, Cambridge University, in 1989.
