Police have confirmed the conditions around which a man arrested on suspicion of murder in Helston has been released on bail.

Last week magistrates authorised the police to have more time to question the 24-year-old man and, following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, he was been released on police bail until Saturday, June 26.

Now police have said that one of the conditions of the bail includes not entering Helston.

The force has also moved to reassure people, after some concern was raised both on social media and with local councillors about the decision to give bail.

A police spokesperson said: "All relevant immediate safeguarding guarding measures have been put in place.

"There is currently no risk to the public from the suspect and this will be kept under regular review."

A murder investigation was launched after police were called to an address above Meneage Road on Tuesday, May 25 and found a 62-year-old woman with neck injuries, according to police, who was declared deceased upon arrival.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said last week: "The investigation is ongoing and residents should expect to see continuing police activity within Helston connected to this investigation over the coming week, whilst forensic examinations continue at the address in Greenbank.

"Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity, or anything out of the ordinary, in the Greenbank, Bullock Lane and Meneage Street areas of Helston between the evening of Monday, May 24 and the morning of Tuesday, May 25."
