Attempts are being made to trace the final movements of a woman whose body was found close to a Co Derry lake.

Police are appealing for help from the public for information.

Agnieszka Szypulska was found close to Binevenagh Lake outside Coleraine on Saturday morning. The lake is a popular beauty spot in the rural area.

"I am trying to trace anyone who may have spoken to or seen Agnieszka over the past few days.

"If you believe you have any information that may assist us in our enquiries please contact police at Limavady on the non-emergency number 101."
