The prosecution's appeal over bail granted to a man accused of the murder of journalist Lyra McKee has been adjourned again.

52-year-old Paul McIntyre, from Kinnego Park in Derry, appeared by video link at the High Court in Belfast this morning.

He was granted bail at Derry Magistrates Court last week.

However, he remains in detention in Maghaberry high security prison in Co Antrim after the Public Prosecution Service said it would appeal the decision.

The judge, Ms Justice Siobhan Keegan, has requested that both counsels present her with points to prove the test for the bail application by 9am tomorrow.

She said she would make a decision on the appeal by the end of the week.

Mr McIntyre is charged with the murder of Lyra McKee, possession of a firearm and membership of a proscribed organisation. He denies all the charges.

The 29-year-old journalist was shot dead while observing rioting in Derry's Creggan estate on 18 April last.
