A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder in Feock.

It is after police were called to reports of a stabbing at a house at around 7.40am on Friday morning.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "On police arrival the body of a man aged around 60 years old was found who a short time later was declared deceased at the scene by medical experts."

Police have named him as GP Gary Hughes, who worked in Redruth.

The woman, who is fifty-eight, is being treated in hospital for injuries which are not thought to be life threatening.

She will be questioned when she is released from hospital.
