Man found shot dead near Northern Ireland border

A man has been found shot dead on the outskirts of Londonderry, it was reported.

The BBC said his body was found last night on Brae Head Road near the border and the area had been cordoned off by police.

Foyle's Sinn Fein MLA Martina Anderson told the broadcaster: "The vast majority of people in Derry would absolutely condemn what has happened here in their city this evening."

She said community workers who arrived at the scene before her described it as "horrendous".
