A body of a man has been found on a beach in Co Down, Northern Ireland.

Bangor police attended the scene after the body was found in the water at Ballyholme beach at 7.30am on Sunday morning.

A police spokesman told UTV News: "A post morten examination will be carried out to determine the cause of death which is not being treated as suspicious at this stage."

According to the Belfast Daily, local shopkeeper and Ballyholme independent councillor Alan Chambers tweeted: "Sad news for this family."

Back in October, a body that washed up on a beach in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland, was identified as a man who went missing during a fishing trip in September.

Jaroslaw Andrykiewicz, 38, was swept out to sea while fishing at Ramore Head in Portrush on 14 September.

He had been fishing with two Polish friends on rocks when he disappeared under the water, reports the BBC.
