Emergency crews said the body of Lee Rogers, who was 20 years old and from the Enniskillen area, was found on Saturday morning.

He was one of six men who had been on board a row boat which capsized on the lough close to Portora Boat Club at around 6.15pm on Friday.

Five of them were rescued from the water by nearby hire boats that evening.

Police, RNLI Coastguard, underwater rescue teams and North West Search and Rescue team resumed their searches of Lough Erne and its banks for Lee Rogers on Saturday morning.

He was recovered from the waters just after 11am.

A statement from the PSNI said: "Police can confirm that a body has been recovered from Lough Erne following the capsizing of a boat yesterday, Friday, 16 May.

"We can confirm the name of the deceased as 20-year-old Lee Rogers from the Enniskillen area."
