Scales of justice

A priest has appeared in court in Londonderry charged with drink-driving.

Fr Edward McGuinness, whose address was given as Irish Green Street in Limavady, is charged with driving a car while unfit on April 11.

The alleged offence took place at the Skeoge industrial estate in Derry.

The 55-year-old is due to appear again in court in May. A defence solicitor told the court he did not think the charge would be contested.
