An investigation is starting into how a woman plunged to her death at a Cornish beauty spot.

The 67 year old was found wedged in a gully at Godrevy with major injuries.

A big air and sea search was launched at around 5pm on Saturday evening and she was found around ninety minutes later.

Cliff rescue teams, St Ives lifeboat, the police helicopter and another from RNAS Culdrose were involved in the search.

Locals nearby reported seeing the helicopters using search lights in the gathering gloom.

The pensioner from Camborne was airlifted to Treliske, but doctors could not save her.

Police are trying to piece together what happened - but say there is nothing suspicious.

It is thought she was out for a walk along the coast path when it happened.
