GARDAI are investigating the circumstances after a body was spotted in the sea off west Cork this afternoon.

It is understood that the alarm was raised when a man on the water spotted an object floating in Roaringwater Bay earlier. Efforts are underway to retrieve the body.

The sex of the body, or the circumstances in which the body ended up in the sea are being investigated.

It is expected that the body will be brought to Bantry General Hospital when it is retrieved.
