Huntsman Otis Ferry will spend Christmas in jail after he was denied an application for bail.

The 25-year-old, from Eaton Mascott, Shropshire, appeared at Gloucester Crown Court for the hearing.

Mr Ferry, who has been on remand in the city's prison since September, is facing charges of assault, robbery and perverting the course of justice.

It is alleged Mr Ferry, the son of singer Bryan Ferry, robbed and assaulted a hunt monitor last year.

The incident is alleged to have taken place while Mr Ferry was with the Heythrop Hunt, which covers Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.

The robbery and assault trial was halted when allegations of witnesses being approached were made.

Mr Ferry was later charged with two counts of perverting the course of justice.
