Newry Sinn Fein MLA Mickey Brady spoke to Newry Times and said his thoughts are with the family of the deceased person. “This is a terrible incident and my thoughts are with the family of the person who has lost his life this morning. I am also thinking of the lorry driver who is involved in this most upsetting incident.”
