County Antrim woman called police and covid regulation breach offences were then detected at ongoing party after midday

A WOMAN who was at a property where there was an ongoing party called police and as officers investigated a "row," breaches of covid regulations were then detected, Ballymena Magistrates Court heard.

Details emerged as another of those present - Nathan Adger (27), of Warden Square in Ballymena - admitted a covid breach and was fined £200.

A prosecutor said at 12.30pm on January 17 this year police had gone to a property and it emerged there were seven people present who were not in a 'bubble'.

Defence solicitor Stewart Ballentine said Adger had been "invited" to the premises and when asked to leave he had and he apologises.

Meanwhile, on September 11 last year the defendant had used a vehicle without insurance at Gleno and there was also a driving licence offence.

The court heard his partner asked Adger to drive the car as she "did not know her way back".

For that incident the defendant, who had a record, was banned from driving for a year and fined £150.
