A police officer on traffic duty at a Remembrance Sunday service in Co Tyrone is understood to have suffered a suspected fractured skull following a road traffic collision.

Ulster Unionist councillor Kenneth Reid said his thoughts were with the injured party.

"I wish the police officer a speedy recovery," he added.

The Police Federation for Northern Ireland also tweeted: "An officer on traffic duty at a remembrance service in Newmills, Co Tyrone, has a suspected fractured skull following a road traffic collision."

The Remembrance Sunday event took place at the cenotaph before a parade to Newmills Presbyterian Church for a service.

A local resident, who did not wish to be named, ruled out a terror attack and said: "There was nothing sinister in this. It was an unfortunate accident and everybody's thoughts are with the injured officer."
