THE family of a man who was found hanging in a park got together to hold a memorial tree planting ceremony.

The emotional event was in memory of Peter Little, a popular trader who sold children’s toys at Doncaster’s indoor market.

The family of the 24-year-old were left devastated when Peter was found hanging at Green Lane park close to where his parents Peter and Irene lived in Askern back in May of this year.

As a mark of respect, Peter’s family and friends came together to plant a tree at the town’s park.

The memorial event was organised by South Yorkshire Community Park Ranger Catherine Khamis in honour of the former Hyde Park resident.

Peter Snr, of Green Lane, told the Free Press: “We thought it was a lovely gesture by Catherine to organise this for us.

“It means that now Peter’s friends and family can visit the memorial planting whenever they want to remember him.”

The inquest into Peter’s death, described as a “gentle giant” by his family, was opened at Doncaster Coroner’s Court earlier this year.

Coroner Nicola Mundy adjourned the hearing pending the results of a toxicology test.
