Gary McPhillips, from Hawkin Street, is charged with possessing a sub-machine gun, two pistols, hand grenades, bullets and the drugs ecstasy and mephedrone.

A detective told Londonderry Magistrates Court the drugs had a street value of about £20,000.

A defence lawyer applied for anonymity for Mr McPhillips, but District Judge Des Perry refused the application.

The lawyer said the defendant was admitting the drugs offences, but was denying the firearms and explosives charges. He said the weapons and explosives were found in the attic of the house to which there was communal access.

He was remanded in custody until 10 January.
