A Limavady man who removed his electronic tag has been jailed for one month.

Thomas Eoghan Brolly, of Coolessan Walk, admitted criminal damage on March 8.

Derry Magistrates Court heard the 25-year-old claimed the tag ‘fell off’. When told this was impossible, he said it was a ‘mystery’.

Paddy MacDermott, defending, said his client ‘helped’ the tag fall off.
