Police in the North have arrested a 27-year-old man following a suspected arson attack that claimed the life of another man in Co Down this morning.
The man, who was in his 20s, died in a fire at a semi-detached house in the Larchwood Mews area of Banbridge.
The blaze broke out shortly before 6am.
The Fire Services say it was very intense and well-developed by the time they arrived on the scene.
