Police have launched a murder investigation into the death of a man in his 50's in Banbridge.

Detectives from the PSNI’s Serious Crime Branch described the death as 'suspicious' after a body was found in Millmount Court  on Monday.

Officers say the man’s body was discovered at a house at around 4.50pm.

A 28 year old man, who was arrested at the time, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in police custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan, who is leading the investigation, said: “I am appealing to anyone who has any information to contact police.
