The Northern Ireland Prison Service has confirmed the death in custody of a 30 year old prisoner at Maghaberry Prison.
In line with procedure, the PSNI, Coroner and Prisoner Ombudsman have launched investigations into the death.
Prison Service Director General Sue McAllister said: “I extend my sympathy and that of the Northern Ireland Prison Service to the family of the prisoner who has died. This is a tragedy and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.”
While investigations are ongoing it would be inappropriate to provide any further comment.
