A customer swung a metal chain at security guards after being challenged about scanning his shopping, a court heard today.

Michael Nicholl was sentenced to 12 months probation for an outburst likened to a "switch being flipped" on a normally placid individual.

The 47-year-old, of Shaws Place in Belfast, was convicted of three counts of common assault, disorderly behaviour and possessing an offensive weapon in public.
