Inspectors from the Health and Safety Executive, along with police officers, remain at the scene of a fatal accident on a County Armagh farm.

A man in his 50s died on Tuesday after falling from the roof of a new farm building he was working on at Derrycarne Road near Portadown.

Another man was injured. His condition is not thought to be life-threatening.

As the men were working on a building rather than farming project, it is not being treated as a farm death.

The accident happened Road shortly before 13:30 GMT.

Both men were foreign nationals. The man who died had not been named.

DUP councillor Jonathan Buckley said the farmer was devastated by what had happened.
