Police are investigating after a member of the public discovered a body on a beach in Northern Ireland.
The member of the public reported the find just before 5am on Thursday.
It’s thought the body was discovered by a man out walking his dog on the beach in Newcastle.
The promenade in the Co Down town has been sealed off. However, at this stage it is not thought the discovery is being treated as suspicious.
A PSNI spokeswoman said: “Police are examining the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a man’s body on the beach in Newcastle.
“The body was found by a member of the public shortly before 5am.”
