A teenager has died after the car he was driving collided with a cow in Co Antrim.

Josh Fletcher, 18, from the Moira area, died in the early hours of this morning after his car left the road after colliding with the animal.

The incident took place on the Moira Road in Lisburn at around 3am.

Sergeant Jonny Mackenzie has appealed for any potential witnesses to come forward.

"Josh was the driver of a car which left the road after colliding with a cow at around 3am on Sunday morning and sadly died at the scene as a result of his injuries," he said.

"We are currently conducting a number of follow-up inquiries into the collision.

He said the teenager was travelling in the direction of Moira, between the junctions with the Bushfield Road and the Moyrusk Road, when the collision took place.
