Police have released CCTV footage of the last movements of a man who died suspiciously in Newtownards.

Dessie Mee, 45, died after an incident at the Millers House apartment block in Regent Street on Tuesday July 26.

Mr Mee, from Blenheim Drive in the town, was found badly injured outside the block and died later in hospital.

Two men and a woman arrested in the wake of the incident have been released on bail pending further police inquiries.

Detective Superintendent Kevin Geddes from Serious Crime Branch says, “This remains a suspicious death. I am convinced that the answer to what actually happened to Dessie lies in the local community and particularly with anyone who was in Millers House that night, Tuesday 26 July.

"Some people have come forward and spoken to us. Others have not. I would urge anyone with information about the events of that night or the preceding days to contact detectives on the non-emergency number 101 or use the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
