Police have launched an inquiry after a man's body was found washed up on a beach in Co Antrim.

The Evening Standard reports the remains were discovered at Carnlough on the north coast.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, a Police Service of Northern Ireland statement said: "Police are investigating following the discovery of a body on the beach in Carnlough today.

"No further details are available at this time."

Meanwhile, back in April 2013, the body of a man was found washed up on a beach in Dublin.

The male, thought to be in his late 20s, was found by a walker just at a beach on Bull Island.

Back in October 2012, a human arm was found on a beach in Dublin. The limb was discovered during a Garda patrol at Shankhill Beach in south Dublin.

Garda said it was too early to tell whether the limb was related to the discovery of the human leg that washed up on Dollymount Strand on Bull Island.
