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

The forty year old has been questioned and released on bail.

It is after a 96 year old woman died following a fire at a care home Truro back in 2008.

Gladys Rowe was pulled from her bed by firefighters, in the room she shared with another resident of Rosewyn House.

She died in hospital days later, after breathing in smoke.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "A 40-year-old woman from Redruth has been released on police bail after being arrested on suspicion of murder.

"The arrest relates to a fire at the Rosewyn House Care home on Alverton Terrace, Truro on 24 November 2008.

"A 96-year-old female resident of the home died in hospital a week after the fire as a result of smoke inhalation.

"The suspect was arrested yesterday, Wednesday, 12 March 2014 and later released on Police bail until 27 May 2014.

"Investigating officers have urged anyone who may have information regarding the incident to contact them on 101 or Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111, quoting reference GT/13/1051."
