An inquest resumes this morning into the death of a woman in Camelford and whether it was linked to the water poisoning.

Carole Cross lived in the town when 20 tonnes of aluminimum sulphate was dumped in the wrong tank.

She died from a rare form of alzheimers in 2004.

Back then, a post portem revealed she had high levels of aluminium in her brain.

The inquest has already heard that when a relief lorry driver made the mistake at Lowermoor Treatment Works, the old South West Water Authority insisted the water was safe to drink.

The hearing continues.
