A 48-year-old man was arrested by police investigating the death of a younger man in Co Down.

The man, aged in his twenties, died at Crochan Court in Bangor, a PSNI spokesman said.

“The discovery of a man’s body in a garden in Rathgill has been a great shock to the local community,” she said.

“Investigations into the cause of his tragic death are ongoing and I would ask anyone with information to pass it to the police on the 101 number or anonymously to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
