A four-year-old boy has died in County Donegal, in what Gardai have described as a "tragic accident".

He was playing in a yard beside his home in Donegal Town when a six-foot steel door fell on him around 1730 BST on Thursday.

The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post mortem examination is expected to be carried out on his body at Letterkenny General Hospital.
