AN IRISHMAN has died after being knocked over by a bus in Barcelona.

The 55-year-old died in hospital after being rushed critically injured from the scene of the accident.

A local magistrate is now probing the incident with help from the local police force - known in the city as Guardia Urbana.

The accident happened just after 11pm on Saturday night near to the Paral.lel tube station, a short walk from the old fisherman's neighbourhood of Barcelona known as Barceloneta.

He was pronounced dead at the Hospital Clinic, one of the city's main public hospitals.

A town hall spokesman confirmed today: "The pedestrian who died was a 55-year-old man of Irish origin.

"The Guardia Urbana is trying to clarify the circumstances of the accident."
