A woman aged in her 40s is critically ill in hospital following a road crash in Co Down in the early hours of Sunday morning.

She was rushed to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast at around 3.40am.

A spokeswoman for the Belfast Trust has described her condition as critical.

The A1 road between Dromore and Hillsborough was closed on Sunday morning in both directions following the crash. It re-opened at around 2.45pm.

It is understood that the crash involved one vehicle which was in a collision with an electricity pole.

Meanwhile part of the Agivey Road in Aghadowey will be closed on Sunday from 10am until midday to allow for a police reconstruction of a collision that happened on May 14, 2016.

The road will close from the Cullycapple Road junction to the Drumeil Road and Clagan Park junctions.
