Bail-breach smuggler gets 6mths; DIESEL.

A NORTHERN Ireland diesel smuggler was given six months extra in jail yesterday - for failing to turning up for his trial.

Thomas McCague was convicted at Liverpool Crown Court, in his absence, in 2005 for conspiracy to evade fuel tax and money laundering.

The 35-year-old was sentenced to five years but was arrested in 2007 in the Republic where he fought extradition.

But McCague, of Rosemount Avenue, Armagh, lost the battle last month and was brought back to Merseyside to serve his sentence.

He appeared before Judge David Swift on Monday admitting breaching bail. Customs bosses claim McCague evaded tax of around pounds 1.4million selling dodgy product.
