DETECTIVES are probing a suspected drugs link to a death in Co Down.

The body of a 20-year-old was found at a house in the Ballyvally area of Banbridge on Friday evening.

A second man found in the house was rushed to hospital. He is in a stable condition.

The PSNI say detectives are awaiting the results of a post mortem examination, toxicology and other tests to give an exact cause of death.

A spokeswoman said the probe was at a “very early stage”.

It is the second sudden death in Ulster in the past fortnight.

Paul Crothers was found in a house in east Belfast after a four day drug binge.

The 21-year-old was suspected of taking a dangerous Ecstasy tablet know as ‘Green Rolex’ stamped with ‘castles’ or ‘crowns.

Two previous east Belfast deaths in June were confirmed as a result of taking the fake ‘E’ tabs.

Her 23-year-old alleged dealer was later arrested for questioning.
