FOUR young men from Bicester on trial for allegedly kidnapping a teenager and ordering him to strip naked in a field have started giving evidence.

Yesterday their defence case began in Oxford Crown Court and the group, who all deny the charge, answered questions from the witness box.

They are Mohammed Hussain, 22, of Marigold Walk; Liam Hutchison, 20, of Leach Road; Cameron Wilkins, 18, of Reedmace Road, and a 16-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons.

John Law, prosecuting, said on May 20 last year the group used threats and intimidation to kidnap 18-year-old Callum Pieton over a £150 drug debt he allegedly owed Wilkins.

The trial continues on Monday.
