A man has died following an alleged "one-punch" attack in Co Down earlier this week.

He has been named by police as 22-year-old Darren O'Neill.

Mr O'Neill was admitted to hospital following an incident at Tyrella Beach in Downpatrick on Thursday.

Detective Chief Inspector Darren McCartney said: "I would like to offer my sympathy to the family and friends of Darren at this very sad time."

He appealed for witnesses, or anyone with information, to contact detectives.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out to determine the cause of death.

Detectives investigating the case have charged a man, aged 21, with grievous bodily harm in relation to the incident.

He is due to appear at Downpatrick Magistrates Court on 25 July.
