A woman who told police to 'give my head peace' has been fined at Derry Magistrates Court for disorderly behaviour.

Donna Catriona Doherty, 45 of Northland Road, admitted a charge of disorderly behaviour in Shipquay Street on January 4.

The court heard that at around 2am on that date police were on duty in Shipquay Street.

Doherty started shouting various things and as time went on she continued shouting.
