South Yorkshire Police said the car was travelling towards Killamarsh, collided with fencing and then left the road.

Mr Marsden was pronounced dead at the scene and a 31-year-old man also inside the Zafira suffered serious injuries.

He was taken to hospital but has since been released and is recovering at home.

Two men, aged 31 and 25, have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and have been released under investigation as enquiries continue.
