A prison officer has denied a charge of misconduct in public office over the death of prisoner who killed himself in a County Antrim jail five years ago.

Daniel Joseph Neal Barclay, from Belfast, told Craigavon Crown Court he was not guilty of the charge.

The case relates to Colin Bell, who took his life in Maghaberry jail in 2008. He was serving a life sentence for murder and was on suicide watch.

Mr Barclay, 35, failed in his bid to stop his name from being published.

The judge varied an anonymity order and ruled that the prison officer's name could be reported.

However, she has yet to decide if an image of the defendant can be published.
