POLICE are investigating the suspicious death of a young South Yorkshire woman, whose body was found yesterday morning.

Two men have been arrested and were still in custody today.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “Police discovered the body of a young woman at an address in the Dinnington area of Rotherham during the early hours. Officers are treating the death as suspicious.

“The body of the woman, who is not being named, has been taken to Sheffield’s Medico-Legal Centre for a post-mortem examination.

“Two local men are currently in police custody assisting officers with their inquiries.”

Dinnington councillor Simon Tweed said he was ‘utterly shocked’ by the news.

“We always think our communities here are quiet and rural and everybody knows each other,” he said.

“It comes as a shock when anything like this happens. Our thoughts go out to the families affected.”
