POLICE IN BELFAST are appealing for information after a man died after an altercation in Belfast city over the weekend.

31-year-old Paul McCready from north Belfast passed away in hospital from injuries sustained in an altercation on Donegall Street at around 12.50am on Sunday.

A 30-year-old man who was arrested at the scene remains in custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Geoffrey Boyce said:

We know that a large number of people were in the vicinity of the Donegall Street/Waring Street junction at around the time this incident took place.

“I would appeal to those people who haven’t yet got in touch with the investigation team to please do so. We are keen to gather as much information as possible about the circumstances and events that occurred here early on Sunday morning.

Investigators can be contacted by calling 101 and quoting reference number 94 of 02/04/17.
