SHAUN LOWTHORPE

A father and son charged with the manslaughter of a 21-year-old man at McDonalds in Norwich city centre were today granted conditional bail.

Gerard Owen Stonehouse, 48, and Jonathan William Stonehouse, 18, both of Woodcock Road, Norwich, appeared before Norwich Magistrates this morning.

The pair, who were charged last night, appeared in the dock flanked by security guards.

They were granted conditional bail on the grounds they live in a bail hostel outside Norfolk, report to police three times a week and do not enter the county other than to attend court or visit their solicitor.

However, they will remain in custody until a suitable bail hostel can be found, which is expected to be Monday.
