Police have confirmed that the body of a man from County Down has been found during a search on Lough Erne.

Kenny Andrews, 31, was from Bangor and the managing director of Newtownards-based company, Damp Proofing NI.

His fiancée and family have expressed their thanks to the emergency services who were involved in the search.

The operation, involving police, RNLI , Community Rescue Service volunteers and the Irish Coastguard, began on Sunday after an incident involving a jet ski.

"A post mortem examination will take place in due course," a police spokesman said.

"Police are not treating the death as suspicious at this time."

Ulster Unionist MLA Rosemary Barton said news of the recovery of a body brought "profound sadness".

"At this very difficult time, my thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved family together with those of the rescued jet skier."
