Detectives investigating the death of a man found in Rotherham this morning (Saturday 1 January) have made two arrests.

A 26-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of murder in London, and this is now being treated as a murder investigation.

Officers attended Doncaster Road after the man’s body was found at about 1.20am today, and also Badsley Moor Lane in relation to an incident of public disorder. Formal identification is yet to take place.

The scene at Doncaster Road has now been cleared and the road has reopened. Badsley Moor Lane remains closed near the junction with Victoria Avenue.

Enquiries are continuing and people are still asked to avoid this area while this work continues.

Further updates will be provided through SYP’s social media channels when they become available.
