A 20-year-old man has been remanded in custody over a series of stabbings in a County Tyrone village.

Christopher Hugh James Kelly, of Minterburn Road in Caledon, faced five counts of attempted murder following an incident in the village on Monday.

Strabane Magistrates Court heard that he had been psychiatrically assessed after he was taken into custody.

A detective constable confirmed that the accused did not know any of the injured parties.

Mr Kelly spoke briefly to the court, to confirm he understood the charges.

He was remanded in custody until 14 March.

Three of the four people hospitalised following Monday's incident have since been discharged. Another is described as ill but stable.
