A post mortem examination has found that schoolboy Noah Donohoe died as a result of drowning.

The 14-year-old disappeared on the 21st of June and his body was recovered from a storm drain in north Belfast, six days later. 

The details have come about in an article published in today's Irish News.

The family of the Saint Malachy's pupil have not been told if the teenager suffered any head injury prior to his death. 

That's despite speculation that he may have had a concussion after falling off his bike.

It is now also known Noah had been on his way to Cave Hill country park to meet friends on the day of his disappearance to work on his Duke of Edinburgh award.
