The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission is deciding whether to conduct an investigation into the recent death of a young man in Co Waterford.

The 21-year-old man took his own life earlier this month in a village in Co Waterford.

Gardaí have now asked GSOC to investigate the death because of information contained in a note the man left.

GSOC is looking into the matter but has not yet opened a full investigation.

A decision is due shortly.
