Tributes to Ironville veteran
Tributes have been paid to a 39-year-old veteran whose body was found in an Ironville park.
Jonny Cole was reported missing from his home in the village last week – sparking a huge response from the community to find him.
A post from his partner appealing for help to find Jonny – who reportedly suffered from PTSD and anxiety – was also shared over 370 times on Wednesday, August 8.
Sadly, a body was found in Codnor Park on Thursday (August 9) morning. Derbyshire police confirmed that the body was that of Mr Cole.
A spokesman for the force said: “Officers do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances.”
