Police have said they are not treating the death of a pregnant woman at a house in County Antrim as suspicious.

Emergency services were called to the property on the Whitepark Road, Ballycastle, at about 17:35 BST on Tuesday.

The woman, who died at the scene, was in her 20s.

SDLP Councillor Margaret Anne McKillop said the community was in "utter shock".

"My thoughts and prayers are with the young woman's family and friends at this devastating time," she said.

"I can't imagine what they're going through. It's just the worst news you could receive."

Ulster Unionist Councillor Joan Baird expressed "her deepest sympathy to the family".

She said "it is very sad" and "the community will now rally around".

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS), Air Ambulance and police attended the scene.
