A young west Belfast man has died suddenly.

The man - who has been named locally as George (Geordie B) Bingham - was found close to the Brians Well Road area of Poleglass yesterday morning.

It is understood that he lived nearby.

The PSNI are not treating Mr Bingham's death as suspicious. Sinn Fein councillor Stephen Magennis said he was shocked to wake up so such sad news.

"It's just terrible coming into the Christmas period," he said.

"The community will be very saddened by this; we have had a number of deaths of young people over the years in the area and it's very sad to hear anything like that.

"My thoughts are with the individual and their family and friends at this point."

The area was cordoned off by police for much of yesterday.
