A prisoner has appeared in court in connection with a disturbance at HMP Birmingham last month.

A solicitor on behalf of Ross Queen indicated his client would plead not guilty to two charges of prison mutiny and one of taking a photograph inside the prison.

The 30-year-old, of no fixed address, was remanded in custody.

The case was adjourned until 3 February, when he is due to be asked to formally enter pleas.
