Friends of a Dungannon taxi driver have taken to social media to pay tribute following the young man’s tragic death.

Kevin Ross, who was in his late 20s, is understood to have died at Craigavon Area Hospital earlier today (Monday, Sept 5).

It is thought he had been a patient at the hospital for around a week, but when asked about the circumstances surrounding his death a spokesperson for the Southern Trust said they do not comment on individual cases.

Police said they were made aware of an incident at a hospital in the Craigavon area on Wednesday, 31 August, but that there are no further details.

“Another young life taken from us,” said one of Kevin’s friends on Facebook.

“Complete gentleman you were Kevin Ross. You will truly be missed.”
