POLICE have issued a fresh appeal for information following the death of a man on the A30 near Launceston in December.

Devon and Cornwall Police are urgently trying to trace the family of Cameron Turner, who was killed when he was reportedly struck by three vehicles on the eastbound carriageway before Christmas.

He has been identified as Cameron Turner, 38, and from Launceston – but has also been known as Stuart Long and was born Stuart Froggatt.

The fatal collision took place at around 5.50am on December 22.

The male driver of a white Peugeot Boxer van, registered to St Columb Major, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and interviewed by police. Aged 50 and understood to come from the local area, he has been released on police bail until March 12.

The other vehicles involved were a blue Peugeot 106, registered to an address in Launceston, and a white Mercedes Sprinter van whose registered keeper is in Newton Abbot.

The female driver of the Peugeot 106 and both male van drivers were treated by paramedics at the scene for shock.

Police said he was born in Sutton-in-Ashfield in 1975 and has lived across the Midlands, only lately moving to Cornwall.

A police spokesman said: “His parents were Jennifer and John Froggatt of Forest Town, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

“He has been estranged from his family for many years and Police enquiries have so far failed to find his parents, or any siblings.”

Officers would like anyone who knows of the family to get in touch with the Family Liaison Officer, MPC Larcombe-Ford via email on 16295@devonandcornwall.pnn.police.uk

The inquest into Mr Turner’s death was opened and adjourned last week.
