Tribute to serving police officer from Perranporth

The daughter of a serving police officer has paid tribute to her mum whose body was found at a Perranporth property last week.

Police were called to St George’s Hill at around 9.50am on Wednesday 3 July by the ambulance service.

51-year-old Rebecca Golding was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Rebecca joined the Force in 1989 and was most recently working as a custody sergeant based in Newquay.

Her daughter Eloise paid the following tribute:

"What can we say? We never expected to have to do this. She was mother, sister, and aunt; all this and so much more. Poet, equestrian and animal lover.

"She struggled, fought and won on many occasions, but she was always Bekkie.

"We joked with her, we teased her, laughed at her (a lot) but we will never forget her. She is loved, missed and will never be forgotten - ever."

The death is not currently being treated as suspicious and a file is to be prepared for the coroner.
