A father and son have been fined after admitting an assault on an actor from BBC Wales police drama Hinterland in Ceredigion.

Aneirin Hughes, who plays Ch Supt Brian Prosser, suffered facial injuries in the incident at a pub in Aberystwyth.

Dewi Lloyd Edwards, 24, received a community order and a £250 fine from town magistrates after admitting common assault and actual bodily harm.

Robert Meirion Edwards, 52, was fined £105 after admitting an assault charge.

The incident was over a long-standing dispute about agricultural land which has since been resolved, the court was told.

A third man, Steven Paul Welsby, 40, denied a charge of causing actual bodily harm.

His case was adjourned for trial next month. He has been released on conditional bail.
