A man who gave ‘the finger’ to police after coming out of a bar was fined £100 at Londonderry Magistrates Court and was ordered to pay a Court Levy of £15.

James Columba Harkin (45), from Lettershandonney Avenue, admitted disorderly behaviour at Spencer Road on May 10.

A defence solicitor said Harkin had been drinking and described the episode was “a childish thing, especially for a man of that age”.
