The principal of the Model Primary School in Derry has paid tribute to pupils for their maturity after they discovered a dead body during a field trip.
The Primary 7 class of 27 pupils had been combing the beach at Magilligan in small groups, when five of them saw the outline of a body and reported it to their teacher.
A PSNI spokesman confirmed to the Derry Journal: ”Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a man whose body was discovered by members of the public at Magilligan Point this morning, Tuesday 20 May.
“A post-mortem examination will be carried out to determine the cause of death.”
