A police officer had to take ‘evasive action’ to avoid being hit by a car, a court has heard.

Darren Robert Canning, of Rinmore Drive, admitted driving without due care and attention on September 20, last year.

Defence solicitor Paddy MacDermott said his client ‘no intention to put the officer in danger’

District Judge Barney McElholm fined him £500 and imposed five penalty points.
