Man dies at Westland factory in Dungannon

A tragic accident has happened at Westland's Dungannon factory resulting in a mans death.


Westland have issued the following statement:


"We are deeply saddened by the loss of an employee following a tragic accident at our Dungannon site yesterday.


"We will be offering support to the family and to our colleagues in the immediate aftermath.


"Westland is investigating this incident and is assisting the HSENI with its enquiries.


"At this early stage, we have no further details other than what has already been reported.


"We extend our deepest sympathies to the family at this devastating time."


The Ulster Herald names the man as Phillip Moore and on the Clogher Valley RFC facebook page the following was posted: "It is with deep regret we have been informed that our friend and playing colleague Phillip Moore passed away this morning after an accident at work. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Ruth, daughter Lilly and the family."


On the BBC News website First Minister and Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA Arlene Foster described Mr Moore as a "real gentleman who loved his family immensely and was a wonderful friend".


"He will be missed by his colleagues and I know within Clogher Valley Rugby Club who held him in such high regard."


She added: "This news has been a huge shock to Westland Horticulture, where he worked and indeed the entire Clogher Valley area. I extend my deepest sympathies to his family."
