A person has died following a road traffic collision on the busy A2 Belfast-Bangor road.

The incident happened at Rathgael on the outskirts of the north Down town last night.

No information has been made public about the identity of the victim.

North Down MLA Gordon Dunne said: "This is tragic news, and my thoughts and prayers go out to the family affected at this terrible time.

"It is an awful tragedy for any family to have to face and I know local people are shocked and saddened at this latest tragedy.

"The A2 Bangor to Belfast dual carriageway is a very busy section of road with over 40,000 vehicle movements every day - and this is a very sad reminder of the dangers of our roads."

Meanwhile, a woman was rushed to hospital yesterday morning after an incident at an east Belfast packaging firm left her with serious injuries.

The Health and Safety Executive said that it was investigating the incident.
