Chef gets legal aid after solicitor says hospitality industry is going to ‘take a nosedive’ due to coronavirus


A CHEF who had been accused of being disorderly at Queen Street in Ballymoney and obstructing a police officer has had the charges withdrawn after accepting a caution.

Jamie Tosh (25), of Mullaghacall Road, Portstewart, was charged in relation to June 27 last year.

He was at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday.

Legal aid was granted after a defence solicitor said the defendant was a chef and told the court the chances were the hospitality industry “is going to take a nosedive” because of coronavirus.
