Pig farm worker dies in accident

A man has been killed in an industrial accident in Co Armagh.

It is understood the 45-year-old, named locally as Robert Wilson, died in an accident involving a feeder.

Further details have yet to be released.

However, it is believed it took place at the pig farm he worked at on Cortynan Road in Killylea at 9am yesterday.

The PSNI is preparing a report for the coroner.

Armagh mayor Jim Speers described the death was “a tragedy”.

He said: “I would extend my thoughts and prayers to the family circle.

“This would be devastating to a family at any time, but is particularly poignant as we approach Christmas.”
