A 26-year-old man has been charged with the murder of 23-year-old Kyle Neil, whose body was found in the body of a Ford Fiesta on Windsor Avenue on Sunday.

Mr Neil had been at a house party in Comber.

The police believe that he was murdered after the party at Church Gate apartments on Mill Street in the town.

The victim is the father of a three-year-old girl.

It is believed that Mr Neil's body was put in the car before it was driven to Island Hill car park on the shore of Strangford Lough.

The car was then driven to the Windsor Road where it was reported to the police by a member of the public at around 7.30am.
