A 75-year-old man has pleaded guilty to historic sex offences. Patrick McMonagle, of Somme Park, Waterside, admitted six charges of indecent assault.

The offences were committed between February 1981 and December 1984 and involve one victim.

Derry Crown Court Judge Philip Babington adjourned sentencing for a pre-sentence report to be compiled.

Defence counsel Mark Reel said his client suffered from ill health and he would also be submitting a medical report.

McMonagle was released on continuing bail until April 5.
