Officers were called to Silver Street last night with eye witnesses reporting they had seen a number of armed officers in attendance at the scene.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said that the incident was a sudden, non-suspicious death and would not be releasing any further details about the fatality.

The street has long been the centre of Doncaster’s night life scene.
