A man in his 70s has died following an incident on a farm in County Armagh.

It is understood the man died at a farm in Silverbridge on Thursday afternoon.

His death happened following an accident with farm machinery.

The Health and Safety Executive Northern Ireland (HSENI) said it has launched an investigation into what happened.

“Our thoughts are with the family involved at this very difficult time,” it said in a statement.

Sinn Féin councillor Barra Ó Muirí told the BBC that there is a “great deal of shock” in the area.

“The deceased man is well known among the football club, the wider community and farming community,” he said.
