Donegal man killed in western Australia

A man from County Donegal has died in an accident in Australia.

Sean McBride from Burtonport was taking down scaffolding when it collapsed in the town of Dampier on Saturday afternoon.

The scaffolding the 28-year-old was working on was above the sea. Emergency services were called to the scene, as were police divers from Perth.

The divers later retrieved Mr McBride's body from the area.

The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs said they were providing consular assistance to the McBride family.
