Two Belfast men have been ordered to stand trial charged with having a rifle in suspicious circumstances.

Gerard Flannigan (34) and Brian Holmes (27) appeared before the city's Magistrates Court in connection with the discovery of the gun in April 2013. Flannigan, of Colin View Street, is also accused of separate weapons offences, including possession of a semi-automatic pistol and ammunition with intent to endanger life.

He stood in the dock alongside Holmes, from Upper Suffolk Road.
