Emergency services are currently dealing with a serious work place incident at a factory in Dungannon.

Police and ambulance crews are on the scene at the Linden Foods factory in the Granville Industrial Park on the outskirts of the town.

A spokesperson for the Health and Safety Executive Northern Ireland (HSENI) told Armagh I: “HSENI is aware of an incident in the Dungannon area and inspectors are attending the scene.”

A Northern Ireland Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We received a 999 call at 08.03 on Thursday following reports of an incident in the Granville Road area of Dungannon.

“NIAS despatched one Emergency crew and two Officers to the scene. No one was taken from the scene.”

Armagh I has contacted Linden Foods for comment.

It’s the second serious work place incident locally in just 48 hours following a fatality at a concrete plant in Tandragee on Tuesday morning.

Matthew Biggerstaff, who was only 21, died tragically in a work place incident at the Taranto plant on the Old Scarva Road.
