A YOUNG BOY died after a tragic accident at a brewery in Lisburn, Co Antrim yesterday.

He was named as Oliver Scullion (4), the son of the owners of the Hilden Brewery, the BBC said.

The brewery was established by Ann and Seamus Scullin in 1981.

In a statement yesterday evening, Northern Ireland’s Health and Safety Executive said:
