A man who was due to stand trial for causing the death of a child by careless driving has changed his plea.

Christopher Ian Curran yesterday accepted committing the offence on April 1, 2015, after his lawyers requested his re-arraignment.

Curran (27). from Baronscourt Road, Carryduff, appeared at Dungannon Crown Court yesterday.

He spoke only to confirm his identity, then said "guilty" when the charge was read.

The two-vehicle collision occurred at Lough Shore, Enniskillen and claimed the life of Jamie Float (11).

The boy was rushed from the scene before being transferred to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.

However, he passed away four days later.

Judge Stephen Fowler QC ordered pre-sentence reports.

He remanded Curran on continuing bail.

However, the judge warned Curran: "This should not be taken as any indication of how I will ultimately sentence."
