THREE men charged in connection with an incident in the Pill area of Newport on Sunday in which eight people were injured were all remanded in custody at the city’s magistrates’ court.

Jordan Henshall, 29, of Wolseley Street, is charged with three counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent against Liam Thompson, Gemma Thompson and Joseph Davies.

Justin Henshall, 27, also of Wolseley Street, is charged with one count of actual bodily harm.

And Liam Thompson, 25, of Howe Circle, is charged with one count of attempted grievous bodily harm with intent against Joshua Seivwright. Thompson appeared at the court yesterday afternoon on crutches.

They all appeared in court yesterday.

The three are now due to appear at Newport Crown Court to enter pleas on Thursday, August 21.

They were all remanded in custody by the chairwoman of the bench, Jennifer Ann Lewis.

Police were called to Commercial Road in Pill at about 6.30pm to the incident and arrested six people. Gemma Thompson suffered a broken pelvis, which a Gwent Police spokeswoman said earlier this week was part of “potentially life-changing injuries” sustained.

Two other men who appeared in connection with the case were released on bail on Monday.

Lewis Wilkins, 21, of Sevenoaks Road, Ely, Cardiff, and Joseph Davies, 25, of Drylla, Dinas Powys, are both charged with attempting to unlawfully and maliciously cause grievous bodily harm to Joshua Seivwright.

Both Wilkins and Davies were given a curfew of 7pm to 7am, ordered not to enter Newport except for a pre-arranged appointment with solicitors or to attend court, and not to contact each other or witnesses, directly or indirectly.

They must also report to Cardiff Bay police station daily.

They will also appear at Newport Crown Court to enter pleas on August 21.
