Have your say

THE body of a young mum has been found in a Sheffield house.

The woman, believed to be aged 30, lived on Palgrave Road in Parson Cross with her eight-month-old baby.

Palgrave Road was cordoned off while police investigated the death after the discovery was made at around 3pm on Thursday.

Neighbour Irina Steel, 58, said: “The police told me they found her dead and asked me if I knew her. It makes me feel sad.”

A police spokesman said officers were called to the house on Thursday afternoon to investigate the sudden death of a young woman and cordoned off the property as a matter of routine.

He said the death is not being treated as suspicious and the coroner has been informed.
