A man is up in court accused of murdering a Delabole pensioner - more than a decade ago.

Joan Roddam's body was found back in a field back in 2003.

38 year old Patrick Curran from Westdown Road in Delabole denies murdering Mrs Roddam back in November 2003.

Neighbours described the 74 year old as being a "lovely, lively lady."

Mr Curran was arrested after the original police investigation underwent a 'cold case review'.

The trial at Truro Crown Court is due to begin on Monday and is expected to last around four weeks.
