Cornwall could become the first place in the country to combine the skills of an on- call firefighter with social care in one job. The proposal, made in a report presented at Cornwall Council’s Health and Wellbeing Board, is aimed at reducing loneliness and better supporting neglected people.

The potential new jobs have been described as “exciting” by councillors. But the fire Brigades Union warned it could undermine national discussions. Trevor French, from the union, said: “it is a bit disappointing if a local fire and rescue service are undermining this national discussion on expanding the role of firefighters.” The role is just a proposal and subject to government approval, Cornwall Council said. The report says many of the tasks firefighter and social workers do cross over, such as fire safety in the home, people falling and injuring themselves, the risk from poor housing structures and lack of repairs, and the effect this has on a person’s wellbeing. Cornwall Councillor responsible for environment and public protection, Rob Nolan, said he hoped the “exciting” role would encourage more people to become on-call firefighters. Councillor responsible for adults, Rob Rotchell, said people who “self-neglect” are often reluctant to accept help but it was hoped the new role would start to overcome this, because firefighters “are traditionally people trusted by most of the public.”

A Royal Marine who was injured in a training incident on 21st January has died. The Marine was part of a group that had been practising an assault from a landing craft on Tregantle Beach, Cornwall. The recruit had been wearing full kit and had “gone under water” during the exercise. The Royal Navy said its “thoughts and sympathies” were with the recruit’s family and friends.

It said the incident was under investigation.

The use of a police Taser played a part in the death of a man who was behaving erratically, an inquest jury ruled. Marc Cole, 30, died after an incident on a street in Falmouth in May 2017. The inquest in Truro heard Mr Cole had been carrying a knife and had delusional thoughts. A jury found his death was caused by "excess use of cocaine resulting in paranoid and erratic behaviour, with the use of a Taser having more than a trivial impact". On 23 May, PC Timothy Wilson arrived at Langton Road to find Mr Cole pacing the street barefoot, carrying a kitchen knife and self-harming.

Eyewitnesses said he was wandering as though "lost". The inquest heard PC Wilson shouted at Mr Cole to drop the knife, but he did not, so the officer deployed his Taser three times for a total of 42 seconds. Mr Cole went into cardiac arrest and was taken to hospital but effectively died at the scene. In previous months, he had suffered delusional thoughts and paranoia, the court was told. He had also taken cocaine during the afternoon which would have increased the chance of an adverse effect from the Taser. Those closest to Mr Cole told the jury his mental health deteriorated after the death of his father in 2015. The coroner offered his condolences to Mr Cole's family. His family said his death had "destroyed our lives" and have called for an "urgent review of police use of Taser".

They added a review was "too late for Marc, but we believe this would save lives". Devon and Cornwall Police said the matter was referred to, and investigated by, the Independent Office for Police Conduct, which concluded the performance of its officers did not fall below the standard expected.
