Police in Cornwall investigating the death of Alan Jeal have released new CCTV images showing him in Newquay on the night before his body was washed up on Perranporth beach.

He's seen getting off a bus at Newquay bus station at 8.16pm and walking around the town centre, before catching the 9.15pm bus to Perranporth.

Originally we believed Alan caught the bus from Truro to Perranporth on Monday evening, but now this latest CCTV shows Alan in Newquay before taking a bus to Perranporth.

We are hoping this may jog the memory of someone who was in the area at the same time as Alan and they may recall seeing him.
