A body discovered in a caravan in west Cornwall after it caught fire is that of a woman in her 60s.

Fire crews were called to the caravan on farmland in Sancreed, west of Penzance, after 999 calls reported an explosion on Tuesday night.

Police have yet to formally name the woman, but she lived alone in the caravan, officers said.

They added that the death was not being treated as suspicious. An investigation is under way into the fire's cause.
