Detectives trying to work out how a Wadebridge man wound up dead on a Cornish beach confirm new leads.

They say some of Alan Jeal's associates have been in touch about the sort of life he led.

He was discovered naked and with a sock in his mouth on Perranporth back in February.

DCI Dave Thorne still wants to trace three people spotted with Alan at a bus stop in Truro the night before his body was discovered: "It's really important that we are able to speak to them because they may be able to give us some information as to his demeanour, maybe if he was talking about anything, maybe if he mentioned anything about the purpose of his journey; that type of thing.

"He was a very private person who kept himself to himself.

"We have now managed to speak to someone - one of his associates - and we believe he probably has other associates out there who we would like to hear from and we'd really urge them to come forward.

It comes after Alan Jeal's brother made an appeal for information about what happened.

Derek Jeal describes Alan as a man who never really went far from Cornwall and as someone who loved the outdoor life, particularly surfing around Polzeath when he was younger.
