A MAN arrested in Denby Dale has appeared before court charged with a double murder in Cornwall.

Thomas Haigh, 25, who gave his address as no fixed abode, appeared before Bodmin Magistrates Court today.

He made no plea and was remanded to appear before crown court on Friday.

The double murder charge came after armed police swooped to arrest him on Wakefield Road in Denby Dale on Monday morning.

It followed the grim discovery of human remains from a farm in Cornwall.

Two bodies were found buried in a car on a farm near St Austell. Police said the bodies were still being identified.

But officers are investigating the disappearance of Brett Flournoy, 31, and David Griffiths, 35.

Mr Griffiths, from Plymouth, who was living in Bracknell, Berkshire, and Mr Flournoy, a professional boxer from the Wirral, Merseyside, were last seen on 16 June in Cornwall.

A second man, Ross Stone of Trenance Downs, near St Austell, has already been charged with disposing of a corpse to obstruct a coroner.

Stone and Haigh are due to appear at Truro Crown Court on Friday.
