Bomb accused's soccer bail change
Champions League
The accused is going to a Champions League match
A Ballymena man accused of explosives offences has had his bail conditions altered so he can attend Celtic's Champions League football match.

Liam Lyness, 23, of Fisherwick Crescent, denies possessing three incendiary devices with intent to endanger life or damage property.

Belfast Crown Court suspended a condition that Mr Lyness has to report to police on a Wednesday.

This will allow him to travel to Glasgow to see Celtic play AC Milan.

Judge Des Marrinan said that although he was relaxing the reporting condition for one day, Mr Lyness must report to police as usual this coming Friday.

The accused was charged along with four other people after police searched a house in Fisherwick Gardens in February 2005.

The five were also charged with membership of the Real IRA.
