Website makes false claims of fatal crash in Co Armagh


A website has been erroneously reporting a fatal road crash in the Armagh area this morning.

The site, called webnews, claims that three people were killed and seven are in a critical condition following a “multi-car crash” in Armagh.

The site also makes detailed claims of what happened in the so-called crash and has a picture of the “scene”.

However, Clint Aiken, content editor of the Lurgan Mail and Portadown Times, said the police press office have no details of any fatal crashes in Co Armagh.

“Just been speaking with police press office about this, they have NO reports of fatal RTC in Armagh,” Mr Aiken wrote on Facebook.
