Man released after earlier arrest in connection with death of Belfast prison officer

A 40-year-old man who was questioned by police in connection with the death of a prison officer in Belfast last year has been released.

Adrian Ismay, 52, suffered serious leg injuries when a bomb exploded under the van he was driving last March.

He died in hospital 11 days later.

Detectives from the PSNI's Serious Crime Branch arrested a 40 year-old man this morning.

He has since been released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.
