A post-mortem examination is expected to take place on the body of a 13-year-old boy who drowned in the River Liffey in Dublin yesterday afternoon.

The boy entered the water with a group of friends between Islandbridge and Chapelizod at around 2.30pm and got into difficulty.

The garda sub-aqua team attended the scene and the teenager's body was taken from the water at around 4pm.

The boy was taken to St James' Hospital where an examination will take place later today.
