Maghera road re-opens following crash

A road outside Maghera has re-opened following a collision earlier today.

The Five Mile Straight was blocked between Lisnamuck Road and the A6 Glenshane Road for a time while emergency services were at the scene.

Police have urged drivers to be careful to the roads, following a number of recent incidents.
