A 61 year old local man has appeared in court charged with assaulting his wife.

George McCart from Ballynamagna Road Rathfriland is charged with common assault on June 18.

His solicitor asked the court to consider changing his current bail conditions allowing him to return home.

However, District Judge Mr Copeland refused, ordering McCart to return to court on 24th July.

He reminded him that he must stay out of Hillhead Park, Banbridge.
