A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a Helston dad was found dead on Father's Day.

It is after the body of Colin Payne was found at flats on Sanctuary Lane on Sunday night.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said, "This is now being treated as a murder investigation with an incident room being run from Camborne Police Station. Officers remain keen to speak to anyone who may have seen Colin between 31st May and 17th June."

We are asked to call 101, quoting reference 1540 of the 19th June.

The seventy-two year old is understood to have been a former postmaster at Porthleven and Ashton.

Pirate FM understands a postmortem has been carried out but that no cause of death has yet been established.

Neighbour Irene knew Mr Payne. She told Pirate FM, "Shocked to be quite honest with you. We are quite a quiet little area here. It's very nice. To think something like this could happen here - and a neighbour as well.

"He was always  quite pleasant. We always passed the time of day. I think it's the shock of it that this should happen here and on Fathers' Day as well."
