Crown prosecutor Elizabeth Kelso said she consented to their bail being enlarged, given they had "stringent" conditions.

She said the prosecutors would not proceed on an indictment which charged a third man, Ryan Hallifax, with grievous bodily harm.

He was discharged.

Mr Hallifax told reporters outside court that he was relieved.
