The death of a Liskeard landlady following a brawl in her pub sparks a police investigation.

Josephine Muratagh collapsed after it broke out at the White Horse Inn on Christmas Eve.

Tributes are pouring in and flowers being left for the popular landlady, who locals described as 'like a mother'.

Crews were scrambled on Saturday night but doctors could not save Josephine.

Police tell us she was not attacked but think witnessing the scrap involving around eight people triggered what they are calling a 'medical episode'.

Three local men have been arrested and bailed.
