Man arrested on suspicion of murder in Co Antrim

A 44-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following an incident in Lisburn, Co. Antrim.

The body of a man was discovered in a car in Limehurst Way at around 4.20pm this afternoon.

Police are treating the death as suspicious and say a post mortem is due to take place.

Forensic teams are now on site.

Marie Burden is a neighbour of the man who died: "It’s awful, the whole road is in shock because they knew him. And he didn’t do anybody any harm. He was a great man, worked away with his cars, kept himself to himself with his wee dog, has lived there many years."
