A man who left the scene of a crash without informing the authorities has been remanded in custody.

Paul James Galbraith of Derby Road in Douglas appeared before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas Courthouse.

The 25 year old was found guilty of driving without due care and attention, failing to report an accident, having no insurance, failing to produce his driving licence or changing his car's ownership, and having two defective tyres.

He crashed into a Jaguar and a VW Golf on Circular Road in Douglas on May 16 2019, but drove off and was later found repairing damage to a vehicle behind Hillside Avenue.

There was no bail application and he was remanded in custody until his next appearance on December 1.
