Health bosses should have shared information on the personality disorder of a man jailed for one of Cornwall's most shocking murders.

So says a new report into the death of Stephen Hoskin.

The 38 year old with severe learning disabilities was bullied and forced to jump from a viaduct in St Austell.

Killer Darren Stewart had a criminal past and a history of mental illness.

Report author Brendan Ward tells the Westcountry Tonight this should never have happened: "There were a number of opportunities missed. Each of the agencies undertook their individual assessments. Generally what they tended to do was see a gentleman in crisis mode. They did not pick up the collateral information and the information from other agencies. They did not see the bigger picture.

"There have been a great deal of work undertaken within the NHS organisations and with their partner organisations as well. There are opportunities through mental health, through child protection, through public protection; they need to take those opportunities to coordinate the care and to share that information".
