The jury in the case of N-Dubz rapper Dappy, who is accused of affray, has retired to consider its verdicts for the second day.

The 25-year-old from London is accused at Guildford Crown Court of affray, two charges of common assault and one of assault by beating.

Dappy, charged under his real name of Costadinos Contostavlos, is on trial alongside Kieran Vassell, 25, of Hammersmith, west London, and Kalonji Stewart, 32, of Harborne, Birmingham, who both face a single charge of affray.

A fourth man, Alfred Miller, 28, of Brentford, west London, has pleaded guilty to affray and his case was adjourned for sentence at the end of the trial.

The case relates to a fight at a Guildford petrol station in the early hours of February 28 last year, leaving three men with facial injuries.
