A popular Doncaster doorman whose friends set up a fundraising campaign to pay for his funeral as he battled terminal cancer has died.

David Nottingham, aged 38, a former boxer and familiar sight on the town's nightlife scene on the doors of pubs and clubs, passed away this morning from adrenal cancer.

Friends of Mr Nottingham had set up a Crowdfunding campaign to help raise the cash for Stainforth-based Mr Nottingham's family.

They have so far raised more than £1,900 towards the £2,500 target.

Tributes have been flooding onto the fundraising page and social media for Mr Nottingham.
