A GROUP of Clackmannan men have appeared in court charged with attempted murder.

Jake Bain, 23, Roddy Bain and Dale Campbell, both 24, appeared on petition at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Tuesday, July 7, following an incident in Stirling the weekend before.

All three men faced a charge of assault to severe injury, permanent disfigurement, danger of life and attempted murder.

And they all face a further charge of being in possession of an offensive weapon while in public.

Campbell faces a third charge of culpable and reckless conduct.

None of the men made any plea or declaration in court on Tuesday.

All three men were committed for further examination, with both Bains released on bail.

Campbell was remanded in custody and will appear in court again within eight days.
