A man has been arrested after a woman's body was discovered in a flat.

The discovery was made at the apartment block on Victoria Street, Lurgan, Co Armagh last night.

The 31-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 36-year-old man has now been arrested in connection with the death, PSNI confirmed.

A post-mortem is due to be carried out and police have launched an investigation.

Local Sinn Féin councillor Catherine Seeley has expressed sympathy to the family and friends of the young woman.

"First and foremost my thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased," Councillor Seeley said.

"This tragic event has sent a wave of shock throughout the community in North Lurgan and beyond."

"It is very early for any details to be released and the PSNI should be allowed space to carry out their investigations.

"I would call on anyone with any information to contact the PSNI immediately."
