Police say there is no evidence anyone else was involved over the death of a local man in Liskeard.

But they are treating the discovery of a body on Lake Lane was "unexplained."

There is a rumour the 37 year old's body was badly burned, but police are not commenting.

There have been forensic tests and a post-mortem over the weekend, but those results have not been released.

Detectives have told Pirate FM they know who the local man is but they will not identify him while the news is broken to his family.

It is after the body was discovered by a member of the public on Friday afternoon.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The male's death is being treated as unexplained however initial enquiries reveal that there appears no third party involvement.

"Detectives are continuing their enquiries surrounding the circumstances of the males death in conjunction with HM coroner."
