DERRY footballer James McClean has admitted having no insurance as his driving case was mentioned yesterday in court.

The Republic of Ireland player (30), of Victoria Gate in Derry, was charged with driving with no insurance or driving licence on June 28 last year.

When the case was called, defence solicitor Paddy MacDermott said that as far as he knew there was a driving licence on its way to him.

He said his client, who did not appear, would be pleading guilty to having no insurance but the charge as regards the licence may be different.

The case was adjourned until May 1 to allow the licence to be produced.
