A community is grieving after a man was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Co Fermanagh.

Daniel Morris died in the crash just before 8am yesterday.

The 37-year-old was from the Brookeborough area of Co Fermanagh.

Police said the crash happened on the Belfast Road between Fivemiletown and Brookeborough.

Mr Morris is the 78th person to die on Northern Ireland's roads this year.

Inspector Keith McBrien said: "Daniel was the driver of a silver Audi car involved in a one-vehicle collision on the Belfast Road between Fivemiletown and Brookeborough just before 8am.

"I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision or anyone who has any information to assist police with our enquiries to contact officers at the collision investigation unit in Steeple on 101."

The road was closed for several hours following the crash.

Enniskillen-bound traffic was diverted at Fivemiletown while Belfast bound traffic was diverted at Dernavogy Road on to the Grogey Road.
