Three people continue to be questioned on suspicion of murder following the discovery of a body in Co Armagh.

A 31-year-old man and two women - aged 35 and 43 - were arrested after police responded to an incident in the Edward Street area of Lurgan in the early hours of this morning.

The PSNI's Major Investigation Team has launched a murder investigation, and is appealing to any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

Sinn Fein MLA John O’Dowd told the BBC that “no community wants to wake up to the scenes we are witnessing here with police cordons and forensic officers on the ground”.

“At this stage the police are doing their job, they are gathering information, they are appealing for witnesses and I would appeal to anyone with information to come forward,” he said.
