Hollywood star Liam Neeson is mourning the death of his nephew, five years after he suffered a serious injury in a fall from a telephone kiosk.

It is understood Ronan Sexton died in Cushendall over the weekend.

The 35-year-old never fully recovered after falling while on a night out with friends in Brighton in June 2014.

He had climbed on to a phone box next to the town's famous pier but lost his balance and plunged to the ground.

Ronan was the youngest son of Neeson's sister Bernadette.

Parish priest Fr Luke McWilliams said the family had asked for privacy as they mourn their loss.
