A pair of teenagers are to face trial on charges of carrying out a string of assaults on New Year’s Day.

Kent Kauppinen and Aaron Tinson, both 19, are said to have assaulted a man and a woman. Tinson is also charged with wounding a second man.

Kauppinen, of London Road, Chippenham, denied charges of grievous bodily harm with intent to a man and actual bodily harm to a woman.

Tinson, of Ludlow Close, Chippenham, denied the same two charges as well as a third count of unlawful wounding.

Judge Douglas Field, at Swindon Crown Court, adjourned the case to Tuesday, October 18 and released them on conditional bail.
