The PSNI have arrested a man on suspicion of murder in connection with the discovery of the body of a man in the boot of a car in Lisburn on Monday afternoon.

The deceased has been named locally as Gerry Mulligan, who was in his late 60′s. Mr Mulligan sold cars and was well-known in the trade locally. He is understood to have previously run a garage close to his home.

A post mortem is expected to take place later today.
