Police are investigating after a man with "serious" injuries was found by the side of a road in Dromore in the early hours of this morning (March 17).

The 46 year old male was located at around 1.40am on the Tummery Road and was taken to hospital for injuries that whilst serious, are not thought to be life threatening.

Sergeant McDonagh said: “At this stage it is not clear how the man sustained his injuries however one line of enquiry is the possibility that he was struck by a vehicle that did not remain at the scene.

“I am appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to please get in touch with police in Omagh by calling 101, quoting reference 104 17/03/20.”
