Detectives investigating the suspected murder of a pensioner whose body was found at an old Cornish mine works have made an arrest.

David Alderson was discovered with serious head injuries at Wheal Maid near Carharrack on 18th January.

Police had thought the 72 year old from Falmouth was involved in a cycling accident.

33 year old Kevin Cooper from Redruth is being taken to Camborne for questioning.

Devon and Cornwall Police have released the following information:

'Following enquiries in the Devon and Cornwall and Thames Valley policing areas, a 33-year-old man from Redruth, who was sought in connection with the incident, was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday 4 February.

He was arrested in the Newbury area by officers from Thames Valley Police and will be taken to Camborne police station later today.

Detective Superintendent Paul Burgan, Major Crime Investigation Team, said: "The public response to our earlier press appeal has been excellent and we would like to thank them for their assistance."

The investigation remains ongoing and anyone with further information should call police on 101.'
