A 24-year-old man found dead at a campsite in Cornwall has been named by police.

Officers from Devon and Cornwall Police were called after Billy James Cogger, from Hayling island, was discovered unconscious at the Trevelgue Holiday Park at Porth, Newquay, shortly after 6am on Saturday.

Mr Cogger was treated at the scene by paramedics from South Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust before being taken to The Royal Cornwall Hospital at Treliske.

He was later pronounced dead.

Police have said his death is not being treated as suspicious.

Mr Cogger’s family said in a statement: ‘Billy was a much-loved member of our family and had a vast number of close friends.

‘He will be much missed by us all.

‘He lived his life to the full and crammed a lot of living into his 24 years.’

The holiday park is used by many as a base for the annual Run To The Sun festival which attracted about 100,000 revellers to Cornwall last weekend. It is not known whether Mr Cogger was attending the event.
