A MAN was involved in a gas explosion and was hospitalised with burns to his legs, his defence solicitor said.
Dean Alexander McAfee (24), of Lodge Road in Coleraine, has had surgery already, lawyer Ciaran Shiels told Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday September 2.
Details of the defendant’s plight were given to the court after his case was called.
The court heard the defendant denies charges and the case was adjourned to October to fix a date for a contest.
The defendant is charged with causing criminal damage to a window and a mobile phone and the theft of a house key on July 24 this year.
