Detectives have made two more arrests over the murder of a Barnsley man.

A 43-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman were arrested at a property on Mont Walk, Wombwell, at around 10am today.

They are both being held on suspicion of the murder of John Gogarty, 65 who was found stabbed to death in his home on Marsh Street, Wombwell, last Friday.

A 48-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder earlier this week has been released on bail.

Yesterday detectives released CCTV footage of a woman they wanted to trace over the murder.

She was captured on a camera withdrawing money from a cash point on High Street, Wombwell.
