A post mortem examination is to be carried out on the body of a man today after a sudden death in Lurgan.

The 37-year-old - named locally as Barry Reaney - died in a house in Flush Place in the town yesterday morning.

It is understood that a party had been held at the house in the mainly unionist area earlier on Saturday night.

"Police are in attendance at the sudden death of a man, in the Lurgan area," a PSNI spokesman said yesterday.

"A post mortem is due to be carried out to determine the cause of death.

"There are no further details at this time."

DUP Upper Bann Assembly member Carla Lockhart told the Belfast Telegraph that residents in the area had been distressed when news of the death spread.

"It's very sad news that a young life has been lost, and a family bereaved, and my thoughts and prayers are with the family," she said.

"This is a settled area, and the neighbours were very alarmed."
