A teenager has been re-arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by police investigating the death of schoolboy Oisin McGrath.

The 17-year-old youth was held yesterday and later released on continuing bail by the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

Oisin, 13, a keen sportsman, was injured a week ago during a playground incident at St Michael's College in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh.

He died in hospital on Thursday and his classmates formed a guard of honour during his funeral in his home village of Belcoo.

Mourners were told he had a bright future ahead of him and he was considering becoming a professional sportsman.
