A PSNI officer said he could connect Carlisle with all of the alleged offences.

Defence solicitor Eoghan McKenna told the court: “This overall picture is very complicated, behind that is quite a delicate situation.”

Mr McKenna said issues about possible addresses have to be resolved before his client seeks to be released.
