Closures are also in place on High Street, Scot Lane, Hall Gate and Printing Office Street to keep motorists out of the one-way traffic system.

Silver Street has been cordoned off by police this morning following an unknown incident at around 4am.

A single police car also appears to be guarding a small scene in Wood Street, near to what what looks like the snapped off top of a wooden door lying in the road.

Silver Street is home to much of Doncaster’s nightlife venues, and the cordon takes in several city centre bars and pubs.

Several other streets have also been shut by police, but this is possibly just to keep motorists out of the city centre's one way traffic system.

Traffic is heavier than usual in surrounding streets because of the closures, particularly on nearby Thorne Road and South Parade.

South Yorkshire Police has been contacted for a comment.
