Detectives leading a murder inquiry in Liskeard have asked for more time to question a suspect.

Police were called to reports of a serious assault in the Cattle Market car park just before 1am on Sunday.

A young man in his 20s suffered multiple stab wounds.

The casualty was rushed to Derriford Hospital but, tragically, he could not be saved.

The senior investigating officer confirmed a 45-year-old local man had been arrested.

Now officers have requested an extra 12 hours for questioning and the man remains in custody.

"Investigating officers have applied for a Superintendents extension to allow them further time to continue their enquries. 

"A man remains in police custody."
