Police have launched an investigation after a teenager died in Bangor on Saturday night.

Emergency services were called to the Market Street area of the town at around 11pm following the sudden death of the 17-year-old man.

The PSNI said his death is not being treated as suspicious, however a post-mortem examination will be carried out over the coming days.

North Down MLA Rachel Woods said: “This is a terrible incident and immediately I think of the young man’s family and his friends.

“A 17-year-old has their whole life in front of them and it is tragic that life can come to end in such a sudden way.

“Police are working to establish the circumstances surrounding the death of this young man.

“I would ask that anyone with any information call PSNI on the non-emergency number 101.”
