    ‘Josh was travelling in the direction of Moira, between the junctions with the Bushfield Road and the Moyrusk Road when the collision took place.

    ‘I would ask anyone who travelled along this stretch of road in the time leading up to the collision to contact police with any information or dash-cam footage they may have.

    ‘Please call on 101 quoting reference number 227.’

    Tributes to the teen were paid online with one person writing: ‘Every parent’s worst nightmare… so very sad.’

    Another wrote: ‘Such a tragic accident. Heartbreaking for the family.’
