Police have released the name of the man who was murdered in north Belfast.

Eamonn Ferguson, 35, was found just before 03:00 GMT on Saturday at a flat in Ardoyne Place. He was from the area.

On Sunday a court granted police more time to question two men who were arrested as part of the investigation.

One resident told the BBC she had been awoken by shouting during the night. Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

Police said a post-mortem examination would take place in due course.
