Rock star’s son Otis Ferry was told he will remain behind bars after his counsel withdrew a bail application over robbery and assault charges.

Countryside campaigner Ferry, 25, of Eaton Mascot, Shropshire – son of Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry – appeared at Gloucester Crown Court yesterday.

Ferry’s barrister Guy Gozem told the court he would not proceed with a scheduled bail application, but did not give a reason.

Ferry, who has been on remand in Gloucester prison for eight weeks, could face another four months in custody as he awaits trial for robbery, assault and “witness nobbling” charges.

He will next appear at Gloucester Crown Court on December 3 for a plea hearing and is due to stand trial on March 9.

It is alleged the 25-year-old robbed and assaulted a hunt monitor last year as she filmed him.

The incident is alleged to have taken place while Ferry was with the Heythrop Hunt, which covers Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.

The robbery and assault trial failed to get off the ground in September when allegations of “witness nobbling” emerged.

He was subsequently charged with two counts of perverting the course of justice.

It is alleged he approached a witness – former groomsman David Hodgkiss – involved in the robbery and assault allegations.

Last week, Daniel Kawczynski, MP for Shrewsbury, the constituency in which Ferry lives, claimed the countryside campaigner was a “political prisoner”.
