Gardaí who were searching for a missing man in Dublin have recovered a body from the Grand Canal, writes Eoin English.

The body was recovered by members of the Garda Water Unit in the Grand Canal close to Harcourt Terrace around 12.30pm.

The area has been sealed off pending a technical examination.

The man has not yet been positively identified but it is believed he died as a result of drowning.
