By FWi staff

A TWO-YEAR-OLD boy has been killed in a tractor accident on a farm near Welshpool, Powys.

William Gittins died in hospital after being hit by the tractor at Hale Farm in the remote mid-Wales hamlet of Trefnannau.

It is believed that he ran out in front of the vehicle as a family friend drove it into the farmyard on New Years Day.

Health and Safety Executive officials are investigating the incident.
