A MAN from the Giant’s Causeway area has admitted driving with excess alcohol in his breath at Crocknamack Road in Portrush.
Hubert Lynch (19), of Causeway Road near Bushmills, has also pleaded guilty to obstructing a police officer.
However, relating to the same date – September 5 this year – he denies charges of failing to stop and report a ‘damage only’ accident.
At Coleraine Magistrates Court defence solicitor Denise Gillan said those charges were being denied because no damage had been caused.
The case has been adjourned to October 28.
