A MAN HAS been released without charge after he was arrested by police in Northern Ireland investigating the death of a man found dead in his flat on Christmas Eve.

The 36-year-old was today arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

Detective Chief Inspector Justyn Galloway said:

The suspect was arrested in the Downpatrick area this morning and is being questioned at Bangor police station.

He has since been released with a report pending to the Public Prosecutions Service.
