Two people have died following a road traffic collision on the Benvardin Road this afternoon.
The road remains closed at Ballybogey Road and Castlecat Road junctions.
Independent Councillor William McCandless said “This fatal road traffic collision at Benvardin is a terrible tragedy and mere words cannot fully convey and express how sorry I am that this has happened.
“I know that nothing I can say will make the pain go away for the family members, I just want you to know that I am thinking of you at this devastating time and that I will keep you in my prayers.”
The family have asked for their privacy to be respected to give them time to come to terms with their tragic loss, we will not be publishing names.
