A London man accused of stalking must not return to the Isle of Wight before a trial in May, a court has ordered today (Tuesday).

John James Keenan, of Lambeth Walk, Lambeth, London, appeared before Isle of Wight magistrates earlier, where he pleaded not guilty.

The 44-year-old was arrested on Hunnyhill in Newport yesterday (Monday), in relation to alleged incidents of harassment between February 13 and 19.

Conditional bail was granted, including having to board a ferry immediately and to not return to the Island until May 23, when he is due to appear before magistrates.
