Londonderry city centre ban for shoplifting offences

An 18 year-old schoolgirl has been banned from entering Londonderry city centre after admitting shoplifting.

Marie Louise Stokes of Marianus Park admitted five offences including stealing a TV, toys, electrical equipment, clothing and cosmetics on dates between 2009 and 2011.

She was released on £300 bail.

However, she was told at the city's magistrates court she must stay out of the city centre, all retail parks in the area and a list of named shops.

She will appear again in court on April 7.
