A 77-year-old man denies a charge of obstructing the Rathlin Ferry.

Bertie Currie, of Ballynagard Cottages on Rathlin, is charged in relation to June 2 this year.

The charge is that he ‘obstructed lawful activity in a public place’.

The specifics of the charge allege that at Rathlin Island the defendant ‘by sitting, or otherwise conducting yourself in a public place, wilfully hindered lawful activity, namely the sailing of the Rathlin Ferry’.

The case was mentioned at Coleraine Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena on Thursday.

A defence solicitor said it was a “first appearance summons” and said the charge is to be contested.

The case has been adjourned to later this month to fix a date for a contest.

No further details were given to the court.
