James Nash, from Collon Terrace in the Pennyburn area of the city was seen by members of a police mobile patrol outside the takeaway in Racecourse Road at 6.30am on 2 May trying to push up the padlocked shutters of the outlet.

When police approached the 27-year-old he became abusive to them and ignored several requests to moderate his behaviour.

A defence solicitor said the police initially thought Nash was trying to break into the premises.

He said Nash had been drinking all night and as he walked home past the takeaway he heard voices inside and tried to lift the shutter to buy a bacon bap.

At Londonderry Magistrates' Court Deputy District Anne Marshall said it was Nash's eighth conviction for disorderly behaviour.

She imposed a one month jail sentence, suspended for twelve months.
