Ronan Sexton, the son of Neeson's sister Bernadette, has died, according to a person familiar with the situation but not authorised to speak publicly.

In 2014, Sexton, then 31, endured serious head injuries after falling about six metres from a telephone booth in Brighton in the early morning, People and The Telegraph reported at the time.

Police were not suspicious of the incident, the outlets reported.The Belfast Telegraph reports parish priest Fr Luke McWilliams told the outlet the family has asked for privacy as they mourn the loss.

Neeson, 66, suffered another significant loss in 2009, when his wife, actress Natasha Richardson, died after hitting her head while skiing in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec.
