N-Dubz Rapper Dappy On Trial Over Fight

Dappy has arrived in court where he is going on trial following a fight at a petrol station.

The alleged clash left three men with serious facial injuries, and Dappy is charged with affray.

It supposedly took place on the forecourt of a Shell garage in Woodbridge Road in Guildford, Surrey, in the early hours of February 28 last year.

The N-Dubz singer, who will be appearing under his real name of Dino Costas Contostavlos, is being tried alongside three co-defendants at Guildford Crown Court.

The other men are Kieran Vassell, 24, of Hammersmith, west London, Kalonji Stewart, 31, of Harborne, Birmingham, and Alfred Miller, 27, of Brentford, west London.

Dappy, 25, performed in N-Dubz alongside his cousin and X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos, and Richard "Fazer" Rawson.

He has recently seen success as a solo artist and recorded with Queen guitarist Brian May.
