A young man has died while camping with friends near the Agivey Bridge in Ballymoney.

The man, thought to be from the Coleraine area, was found dead on Sunday by his girlfriend.

A police spokesperson said: "There was a sudden death in that area on Sunday and it is not being treated as suspicious. A post mortem is being carried out."

UUP councillor Darryl Wilson said: "My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the young man at this very difficult time."

The banks of the Lower Bann near the bridge are a popular spot for anglers and canoeists.
