Woman admits causing bomb hoaxes in Londonderry

A woman has pleaded guilty to five charges of causing bomb hoaxes in Londonderry and wasting police time.

24-year-old Ann Burns from Bracken Park committed the offences between August 2009 and July 2010.

District Judge Philip Mateer told Londonderry Magistrates Court on Friday that in the present climate "these types of offences did not bode well for her."

The defendant is due to be sentenced early next month.
