A 36-year-old man arrested by detectives investigating the death of Ronald Reid in County Down last month has been released from custody.

Mr Reid, 63, was found in his apartment on Donaghadee Road, Bangor, on Christmas Eve.

The man was arrested in Downpatrick on Friday morning on suspicion of Mr Reid's manslaughter.

He was questioned at Bangor police station and released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.

A post mortem examination carried out last month found that Mr Reid had suffered a number of injuries.

Detectives believe the injuries may have been sustained on 22 December, two days before his body was discovered.
