An 88-year-old man who was seriously injured in a road traffic collision earlier this week with a digger has died.

The pensioner had been injured in a collision on Quilly Road between Articlave and Coleraine.

He has also been named as Gerald McElreavey.

He had been taken to hospital for treatment of his injuries after his Citroen C3 car was involved in a collision at around 10pm on Monday evening (16th September) with a Manitou digger.
