Woman in court on Carrickfergus riot charges

A woman accused of rioting in Carrickfergus, County Antrim, has been banned from going within 500 metres of any further loyalist flag protests.

The prohibition on Laura Nicholl, 20, is one of the conditions under which she was granted bail.

Ms Nicholl, of Unity Street, Carrickfergus, faces charges of riotous behaviour, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

She is to appear again before Belfast Magistrates' Court in six weeks.

District Judge Fiona Bagnall granted bail on condition that the accused abides by an 8pm-7am curfew.

Mrs Bagnall also ordered: "She is not to be within 500 metres of any demonstration."
