The investigation into the incident is at a very early stage and I would urge everyone to allow for the investigation to take place without getting into speculation or putting details on Facebook.

As a result of the major fire and the death, Church Street in Portadown will remain closed for the duration of the day. Thank you to our emergency services including our local fire fighters and all those who responded to the incident.

I will be continuing to liaise with the PSNI throughout the course of the day.โ€

An update will follow in due course.
