By Cate McCurry

The funeral of four-year-old Thomas Magee, who was killed in a farming accident, has taken place in Co Fermanagh.

The youngster died after he became trapped under a piece of machinery, thought to be a JCB-type digger.

The little boy was pronounced dead at the scene at his home outside Maguiresbridge on Thursday night.

Mourners gathered at Maguiresbridge Methodist Church yesterday for his funeral service.

He was described by his heartbroken parents David and Jacqueline as their "precious only son" and "devoted brother" of Emily and Lucianna.

Thomas was a P1 pupil at Maguiresbridge Primary School.
