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.

Detectives say they are not looking for anyone else.

Trolver Croft sits alongside Restronguet creek.

Detective Inspector Ben Beckerleg said: "This is the beginning of an investigation, but early indications suggest this was a domestic incident and no-one else is being sought at this time.

"An investigation had now begun to fully understand the circumstances and events leading up to this man's death."

If anyone has any information about this incident please call 101 quoting log 124 of 15 November.
