An arrest warrant was issued last Thursday at Banbridge Court for a man who failed to turn up for sentencing.

Michael Gartland (50), Brookfield Road, Banbridge, faces a series of offences.

They include driving while disqualified, driving with excess alcohol, no insurance, withholding information to obtain insurance, failing to remain and failing to report on August 11 2014.

The case had been adjourned from a previous court so that a pre-sentence report could be obtained.

The defendant’s solicitor said the report was available but Gartland had not turned up at court.

An arrest warrant was issued to bring him to court for sentencing.
