A man and his girlfriend have appeared in court accused of taking part in a violent burglary in Douglas.

Thirty-year-old Mr Cameron has pleaded not guilty to two counts of theft and one each of burglary, criminal damage, assault and provoking behaviour.

Miss Cowell's also said to have shoplifted bottles of wine and makeup from shops in Douglas.

Mrs Hughes refused bail and both were remanded in custody.
