Sinn Féin MP Órfhlaith Begley has said the community is ‘shocked and devastated’ to learn that two young people have lost their lives on the Doogary Road on the A5.

The West Tyrone MP said:

“The community is shocked and devastated to learn that another two young people have lost their lives on the A5 road.

“My immediate thoughts are with these young people’s families and friends as they come to terms with this unimaginable heartbreak today.

“I also want to pay tribute to the emergency services for all their efforts and for attending the scene.

“More families have been left heartbroken by another fatal collision on this dangerous road, and today’s news serves as another sad reminder of the need to move forward and build the A5 with no more delays.

“Police have appealed to anyone who may have been travelling in the area at the time with dash cam footage to assist their inquiries.”
