Newly-wed still wearing veil in car pulling 'donuts', court hears

By Nevin Farrell

A bride still wearing a veil following her wedding was in a car doing 'donuts' on a country road, a court has heard.

The claims were made as three men were charged with dangerous driving at Ballinlea Road near Ballycastle.

The cases of Jonathan Othniel Davidson (34), of Lisnagat Road, Mosside; Martin Jamison (22), of Turnarobert Park, Armoy; and John Edward Mackey Lamont (35), of Turraloskin Park, Moyarget, were mentioned at Coleraine Magistrates Court.

All three are accused of dangerous driving on the Ballinlea Road on February 21, 2015.

Looking at the papers in the case, District Judge Liam McNally asked what was meant by "diffing". A prosecutor told him it was using the handbrake to do 'donuts' (controlled skidding).

She added: "The incident took place after a wedding service and the bride was in one of the cars."

"Allegedly," counsel for Jamison replied. But the prosecutor added: "She was wearing a veil."

All three cases were adjourned to next month.
