An 11-year-old boy has died from injuries sustained in a car crash in Fermanagh on Wednesday.

The accident happened at lunchtime on Wednesday on the Lough Shore Road - the main road between Enniskillen and Belleek - when a blue Audi A3 car was in collision with a white Peugeot van.

The boy was a passenger in the car, which was being driven by a 23-year-old man. The van was being driven by a 47-year-old man.

A PSNI spokeswoman said the two men were also hurt in the crash but their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

Inspector Keith Hicks said: "I would ask anyone who may have witnessed this collision or anyone who saw either the blue Audi A3 or white Peugeot van travelling on the Lough Shore Road prior to the collision to contact investigators by calling 101.”
