No foul play suspected

Gardai in Waterford are investigating after a man in his 70s died from suspected carbon monoxide poisoning.

Emergency services were called to the house in Connolly Place yesterday evening, where the man was later pronounced dead.

His body was removed to University Hospital Waterford for a post-mortem.

Gas Networks Ireland says a team was sent to the scene, but no evidence of a natural gas leak was found.

Nobody else in the area was evacuated, and foul play is not suspected.
