Man held after body found in car

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman's body was discovered in a car.

Police were called to a lay-by close to West Wayland Caravan Park on the A387 between Polperro and Looe in Cornwall at 5.30pm on Friday.

They found the body of a 28-year-old woman, from Wales, in a Ford Mondeo car.

Detectives have launched an investigation into the death, which they say is being treated as "unexplained" at this time.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said a post-mortem examination has been carried out.

He added: "Police await the results of further forensic tests to determine the cause of death."

A man, from Bromsgrove in Worcestershire, was arrested at the scene and taken to Newquay police station.

He has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Devon and Cornwall Police on 101.
