ROCK STAR'S SON FREED ON BAIL OVER ASSAULT CASE.
Ferry, 25, had been on remand at Gloucester Prison since September, awaiting trial for assault, robbery and perverting the course of justice.
Yesterday Ferry, whose father is Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry, was granted bail to live with his mother, the former socialite and model Lucy Birley, 48.
Gloucester Crown Court judge Martin Picton granted the countryside campaigner bail, under a pounds 25,000 surety from his mother, who lives in Kensington.
Under the terms of bail, Ferry is forbidden from entering the county of Shropshire, from going abroad or using any international travel document and from contacting witnesses.
He must also report to Earl's Court Road police station twice a week. He must also not contact three named people.
It is alleged Ferry robbed and assaulted a hunt monitor last year as she filmed him at his sport.
The robbery and assault trial failed to get off the ground in September when allegations of "witness nobbling" emerged.
He was subsequently charged with two counts of perverting the course of justice.
