The incident took place at Altagelvin Hospital.

A 30-year-old Londonderry man has been bailed after pleading guilty to a second charge of disorderly behaviour at Altnagelvin Hospital.

Jonathan Richard McCobb, from Canterbury Park, committed the offence on 27 December.

In reply to the charge he said: "I regret what happened".

McCobb also admitted assaulting two police officers on the same date. In reply to those charges he said: "I regret that too".

District Judge Barney McElholm was told that when he committed the offence in accident and emergency last month McCobb was on probation following his conviction for a previous accident and emergency disorderly behaviour last March.

The case was adjourned until 1 March when McCobb will be sentenced following a pre-sentence report.

In the meantime he was granted continuing bail.
