North Antrim Assembly member Jim Allister has said his thoughts are with the family of a 10-year old boy who died, along with a father who is fighting for his life, after they were overcome by apparent slurry fumes
The tragedy is the latest in a series to rock the agricultural community in Northern Ireland.
It is deeply distressing to hear of another slurry tank tragedy.
The involvement of a young boy makes it all the more heart rendering.
The risks which farming families face are often not fully understood in the wider community.
– Leader of the Traditional Unionist Voice party Jim Allister
