A significant Gardaí inquiry was launched when a body was discovered washing up on a beach in north Dublin.

Following the body's discovery in Balbriggan on Thursday, April 20, Gardaí are looking into all possible circumstances. Gardaí were alerted about the horrifying find on Bowers Beach.

Officers are also attempting to contact the family of the deceased.

A statement from gardaí added the force is aware of images of the deceased which are circulating on social media messaging apps, urging members of the public not to share these images.
