Rugby's Nevin Spence dies in slurry tank tragedy


Tributes have been paid to a rising star of Irish rugby after he and two family members died after falling into a slurry tank in Northern Ireland.

Nevin Spence, who was 22, had played for Ulster and had been called up to the Ireland training squad for the Six Nations last year.

His brother and father also died in the incident at the farm in Hillsborough while his sister is being treated in hospital.
