A 21-year-old man has died following a road traffic incident in County Antrim.

Timothy Fulton, from Shellinghill Road in Cullybackey, was travelling in the back seat of the car, which left the road on the M2 motorway, close to Templepatrick, at around 2.30am on Sunday. Only one vehicle was involved in the incident.

Four other men, aged in their 20's, who were also in the vehicle, were taken to hospital. One of the men is described as being in a serious, but stable condition, two remain in hospital, while another man has since been released.

Meanwhile, police have named the teenager who was killed in a separate incident in County Tyrone on Friday.
