Padriag O'Hanlon was found dead in his home in Warrenpoint at 3am today, Sunday December 27.

Padraig O'Hanlon was found dead in his home in Warrenpoint, Co Down at 3am this morning, the Police Service of Northern Ireland said.

The cause of his death is not yet known and is being treated as "unexplained".
