The police watchdog investigates the death of a Cornish man -hours after he had been arrested.

Logan Peters was released on bail after being charged with criminal damage.

The 22 year old was found dead at his home in Torpoint the next day.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission will also look at a complaint from his family that excessive force was used.

An IPCC investigator collected CCTV footage and custody records from Devon and Cornwall police. Tom Milsom, the IPCC Associate Commissioner who will oversee the investigation, is due to meet members of Mr Peter's family later this month.

Mr Milsom said: "I would like to extend my sympathies to the family of Logan for their loss. I would like to assure them that we will look at the force used at arrest and all of the actions and decisions taken in relation to the risk assessments during Logan's time in custody.

"Additionally, we will look at the communication processes between the custody staff, and the period of detention to determine whether all national and force policies and guidelines were adhered to."
