By David Young

Part of a forest park in Co Down has been cordoned off following the discovery of a body, believed to be that of an elderly man.

A forensic tent has been put up in the forest around Hillsborough lake as the PSNI investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.

In a statement last night, a spokesman for the PSNI said: "Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a man in the Hillsborough Forest area of Hillsborough on Friday.

"Police are not treating this death as suspicious at this stage."

No further details have yet been released.

A post mortem will be held to determine the cause of death.
