Death driver halts bid to see baby

A man accused of causing the death by dangerous driving of a schoolboy who fell off his motorbike has halted a bid for temporary release to see his newborn daughter.

Andrew Paul Morrow withdrew an application for emergency compassionate bail which had been mounted amid concerns about the baby's health.

He is to remain in custody on charges linked to the death of 12-year-old Daniel Mooney after the High Court heard his daughter has now been discharged from hospital.

Daniel died last month from the head injuries sustained after falling from the bike he was riding pillion at Mountcoole Park, north Belfast. He was not wearing a helmet.

Morrow, a 32-year-old window cleaner from Ardoyne Road, Belfast, faces seven charges.
