Two ex-cons will stand trial after denying assaulting another prisoner whilst they were locked up.

50-year-old Sean O'Dea, from Douglas, and 39-year-old Gary Beattie, who's from Ramsey, appeared at Douglas Courthouse earlier this week.

The pair entered not guilty pleas to charges of common assault - it's alleged they assaulted another man in his cell on C Wing on August 7th last year.

A pre-trial review will take place on March 22nd - the duo has been bailed in the meantime.
