Paddy Wilkinson, who was in his 70s, was walking on the Killard Road near Downpatrick at about 4.20pm on Wednesday when he was knocked in an accident involving a Seat Ibiza, Vauxhall Corsa and a Land Rover.

Mr Wilkinson, who moved to County Down from Ballinderry recently, died at the scene.

The accident came just hours after two tragic deaths in Mid Ulster - a farmer accident in Pomeroy and a road crash near Dungannon.
