A coroner investigating the death of Belfast schoolboy Noah Donohoe has demanded an end to "baseless, inaccurate" and potentially "criminal" speculation around his death.

Joe McCrisken said social media commentary on the tragedy should cease, adding that it is "distressing" the family.

He was speaking during a preliminary hearing held in Laganside Court on Friday.
