Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was recovered from the River Foyle in Londonderry today.

The young man's body was recovered at around lunchtime by a Foyle Search and Rescue team. A crime is not suspected at this stage.

Meanwhile, police are appealing for information after the home of a 10-day-old baby was paint bombed in Drumahoe overnight.

The baby was asleep with its parents when they were woken by a noise at the front of their house at Old School Field in the town.

When the couple went to investigate they found the living room window smashed.

Two paint bombs had also been thrown against the front of the house.

A number of people were heard running from scene.
