Sinn Féin Councillor for Banbridge, Dessie Ward, has stated that local community are shocked at the death of man whose body has been found following a house fire at Larchwood.

Speaking today Mr Ward said:

"I've lived in Banbridge all my life and Larchwood has always been a very settled, very integrated area. This house fire and subsequently the death of a man comes as an upset to the entire community.

"Banbridge in general is a very low crime area, so it's very shocking news for people to wake up to this morning and I'm aware that one man has now been arrested."

"I would urge anyone with information surrounding this incident to pass it on to the PSNI." CRIOCH
