Man charged after police chase

A 30-year-old Londonderry man has been charged with a several motoring offences after a police chase in the city on Tuesday.

Steven McCloskey, from May Street, denied three charges of dangerous driving when he appeared at Londonderry Magistrates Court.

He also denied driving without insurance while disqualified.

Mr McCloskey was refused bail and remanded in custody for one week.

The court was told that the chase took place on the Springtown Road, Creggan Road and Ringfort Road.

A police officer opposed bail because the defendant had a number of previous similar convictions and presented a risk to the public.
