Tributes have been paid to a popular member of a Cornish theatre group who has died after contracting coronavirus.

Sterts Theatre, based in Liskeard, said Mick Boyles died at Derriford Hospital on Tuesday.

His wife Ruth is being treated for the virus at the hospital, the group added.

Mick and Ruth have been Sterts stalwarts for many years. Apart from performing, Mick was a trustee for a number of years, a maintenance man, licensee for the bar and frequent willing volunteer. And this was after he had retired following a long career as a local dentist.

Mick, you will be missed. Our thoughts are with Ruth and their children.
