Fordstead Lane was badly hit by heavy flooding.

The road was heavily flooded after the River Don broke its banks more than a fortnight ago.

The country lane connecting Barnby Dun with Arksey is still closed.

Police were unable to say how long the body had been at the spot.

Officers said they did not consider the death to be suspicious.
