A man has died after what police have described as a serious assault in Liskeard.

Officers were scrambled to reports of a disturbance in the town centre in the early hours of Sunday.

The casualty was rushed to Derriford Hospital with serious injuries but, tragically, could not be saved.

Detectives say he was found with multiple stab wounds and a murder investigation is underway.

Cordons remain in place in the area around the Cattle Market Car Park.

Devon and Cornwall Police are urging anyone who saw something just before 1am to come forward.

“Following an disturbance at around 0045hrs on 26th January 2020 in Liskeard town centre a male was conveyed to Derriford Hospital where he died from injuries.

“At this time no formal identification has taken place, but the family of the man are aware of the incident. 

“Anyone with information on this matter is asked to contact 101 and quote log 265 260120”.
