There was a significant police presence in Alison Street in the town yesterday afternoon, exactly two weeks after the 45-year-old, also known locally as Kevin Forrester, was last seen alive.

His body was found at this home by a concerned friend two days later.

Officers questioned members of the public and stopped motorists with a particular focus on the movements in Alison Street on Sunday, February 3 as they continue to piece together the last movements of Mr Bryne.
