The body of a young man has been recovered from a river in Co Carlow.

The Garda Sub Aqua unit had been called in to search for a missing man (19) at Milford bridge, Co Carlow.

It is understood the man had fallen into the river - the search was stood down yesterday evening due to bad weather.

Civil defence forces as well as local search and rescue teams had also been involved.

While search conditions are much better today, the river had been described as being "swollen and fast."
