The body was discovered yesterday morning by staff at the university’s Coleraine grounds.

PSNI OFFICERS in Coleraine are appealing for information about a body which was found in the Cromore Road area yesterday morning.

The remains of a man believed to be aged in his 50s were discovered on the grounds of the University of Ulster shortly after 9am. The body was taken from the campus river by university staff, according to the Press Association.

A post-mortem examination of the body has been held and the PSNI is still investigating the cause of the man’s death.

They are appealing to anyone who has any information to contact police in Coleraine on 0845 600 8000, or the independent charity Crimestoppers if they wish to speak anonymously.
