Detectives have released the name of the name of the man murdered in Ballycastle last night.

48-year-old Anthony McErlain was found dead in a house at Broombeg View at around 8:30pm.

Detective Chief Inspector Gareth Talbot said: “While we are awaiting the results of a post-mortem, what is clear is that Mr McErlain suffered a traumatic and frightening death. I initially described this killing as a heinous crime and I stand by that assessment. We have arrested one man, a 33-year-old on suspicion of murder and he remains in custody, assisting us with enquiries.”

“The investigation team is extremely keen to speak to witnesses or anyone who may have spoken to Mr McErlaine in recent days. We would also like to speak to anyone who was in the area between 5 and 8:30pm and may have witnessed or overheard an altercation or disturbance in or around number 4 Broombeg View.”

Police can be contacted by calling the non-emergency number 101
