The bodies of two men have been found at a house in Co Derry.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said they attended the scene of the “sudden deaths” in Elms Park in the Ballysally area of Coleraine on Monday afternoon.

Police later said in a statement that the deaths are not being treated as suspicion.

The SDLP Assembly member for the area, Cara Hunter, said she was “shocked and saddened” to hear of the men’s deaths and sent her condolences “to their families and friends at this very difficult time.

“The local community will be stunned following this incident and my thoughts also go out to them after this distressing ordeal.

“I would ask that people give the police space to carry out their investigation into these sudden deaths so they can establish exactly what took place here.

“I would also encourage anyone with information about what took place to come forward to police as soon as possible,” she said.
