The body of a man believed to have been swept away by the flood waters in Monaghan has been found.

70-year-old Ivan Vaughn, a showband performer, was believed to have been returning from a gig in Glaslough, Co Monaghan , when tragedy struck.

His body was found just 10 metres from his car on a cross-border road at 11.25am.

A Garda spokesman said Mr Vaughan, from Caledon, Co Tyrone, was reported missing earlier in the day.

It is suspected that his car got stuck in flood waters and he was swept away when he got out of the vehicle.
