Casualty mobile phone callers jailed

Three months and some stitches

Two blokes have been jailed for using a mobile phone in an accident and emergency department.

David Kerr, 24, got three months. He was in Edinburgh Royal Infirmary suffering from a serious face wound. His mate Bryan Ballantyne, 22, got 60 days.

Both ignored requests from staff to stop phoning, as well as notices banning the use of phones. Kerr was calling his family. He plans to appeal. ®
