NekNomination death: NI drinking game web page discontinued

A Northern Ireland-based social media page sharing videos of an internet drinking game is to be discontinued after the death of an Irish teenager.

Jonny Byrne, who was 19 and from County Carlow, died after jumping into the River Barrow in Carlow on Saturday.

His family said he had been playing the game known as 'NekNomination', in which people are encouraged to drink alcohol before posting a video online.

Tara Mills reports.
