Derry Magistrate’s Court heard how 46-years-old Paul McCallion, of Elaghmore Park, was found to have the single defective tyre in Galliagh Park on November 15 last year.

McCallion accepted the FPN but failed to submit his licence despite being reminded by police, the court heard. Defence solicitor Paddy McDermott said his client hadn’t been aware the tyre was so worn.
