Body discovered in shed near Helston's Coronation Lake after fire
A body has been found in a burnt out shed near Helston's Coronation Lake.
At 10.40pm last night police officers, firefighters and ambulance personnel were called to a fire in woodland behind the lake, where there are two abandoned sheds.
When the fire was put out a body was found in the shed.
The police and fire service is currently conducting a joint investigation into the circumstances surrounding the fire.
Police tape surrounds half of the lake this morning.
Eyewitnesses said they saw an orange glow in the area of woods near to an old water wheel, just behind the lake, together with more blue flashing lights than they had ever seen before.
At least two fire engines, an ambulance and more than five police cars could be seen next to the lake.
This morning a lone police car remains at the scene, with an officer carrying out an investigation alongside crewmembers from Helston Fire Station.
