One eye-witness, speaking to Armagh I, said: “It just didn’t look good at all. There was a white sheet placed over the body. I just pray for the person’s family – it’s such a dreadful thing for anyone, and God love those who may have discovered that this morning.”

The man is believed to be in his 20s.

A police spokesperson confirmed the sudden death of a man but said they are not treating his death as suspicious at this time.

There are no further details at his stage.
