A body has been found in an old clay pit in Cornwall.

Devon and Cornwall Police said divers recovered the corpse from a lake in St Dennis on Sunday afternoon.

Officers said it was too early to say whether the death was suspicious and they were awaiting the results of a post-mortem examination.

It was thought the body may have been in the water at Trelavour Downs for some time, they added.
