Former Northern Ireland international footballer Keith Gillespie has been charged with breaking a court order.

Appearing at Newtownards Magistrates Court, the 39-year-old is accused of breaching a non-molestation order by being in the vicinity of Hamilton Road in Bangor, County Down, on 25 February.

Last month Mr Gillespie was arrested when he failed to turn up at the same court for an alleged similar breach on 21 January.

Both cases will be heard on 4 April.

Mr Gillespie, of Ballycrochan Avenue, Bangor, was released on bail of £350.

He played 86 caps for Northern Ireland and spent four years at Manchester United between 1991 and 1995.
