Man barred from courthouse…

Chris Ward, the Poleglass man charged with collusion in the robbery of the Northern Bank who currently out on bail, has been banned from coming within a mile of his former workplace. According to the Andersonstown News it was in order to “prevent the former Northern Bank employee from interfering with prosecution witnesses, who may include other employees of the city centre bank”. Unfortunately it seems the one mile radius included Belfast Crown Court. Ya couldn’t make it up!
