A man has died after being struck by a lorry in Ballynahinch.

The elderly pedestrian was struck on Windmill Street shortly before 11am on Thursday.

Police have now located a lorry believed to have been involved. The male driver has been arrested on suspicion of a number of motoring offences and is currently assisting police with their enquiries.

Inspector Kieran Quinn is appealing for anyone who was on Windmill Street on Thursday morning and witnessed the collision to contact local police or the Collision Investigation Unit on the non-emergency number 101.

The lorry was described as a 6-wheel tipper lorry with a blue/brown cab and was loaded with rubble or vegetables.

It has Miskelly Brothers Ltd writing on the front of the cab although this vehicle is no longer owned by the Company.
