Editors note: An earlier report on The Star website using information provided by South Yorkshire Police said a body had been found during the incident at Lady’s Bridge last night. This was inaccurate, due to a mix up from SYP, and the information has since been changed. We have now produced two reports correcting the mistakes. We apologise for any confusion and insensitivity caused.
