A man has died from swine flu at a hospital in the North.

It is understood the man suffered from underlying health conditions.

He died at Craigavon Hospital in Co Armagh.

People in at-risk groups, those with underlying health conditions and pregnant women are again being urged to get the flu vaccine.

This death comes less than a week after a child died from flu, believed to be the H1N1 strain responsible for the 2009 swine flu outbreak, at a Dublin hospital.
