A former Packet photographer has died following an illustrious career in Helston and the west of Cornwall.

Denis Jory is known for his work at the Packet during the 1970s, as a freelance photographer mainly attached to the Helston office.

He later transferred into film as a BBC cameraman and was known for his quality work in both still and moving footage.

He died last Thursday, aged 84, and his funeral will take place next Tuesday, May 6, at 2pm at Treswithian Downs Crematorium, Camborne.

Mr Jory was proud to be Helston born.

He lived in Porthleven for a time, before moving to Sennen.

He is survived by his widow Glynis and the couple’s daughter, Sanara.
