A 19-year-old Limavady man has been jailed for a year after he admitted engaging in sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl.

Daryl Kelly from Protestant Street in the town was also barred from contact with children without permission.

He was ordered to sign the sex offenders register for ten years.

Judge Pierce Grant told Limavady Magistrates' Court there had been some suggestion that Kelly had been grooming the young girl.
