Police at the scene of their investigation after a body was found in a home at Carr House Road, near Elmfield Park, Doncaster on Sunday October 13. The death was being treated as suspoious and murder squad officers are investigating.

She said police had been into the shop where she works to speak to staff, but no one had told the what was happening in the investigation.

“I came to work at about 9.30am yesterday and there were police cars and an ambulance outside,” she said..

“This is Hyde Park, it is not always quiet around here, and there is a lot happens. But everyone has been talking about the police being outside the shop. I’ve heard of robberies round here but not murders.

Customer at the nearby tanning salon, Naomi Bell, said people had been wanting to know what had happened. “It was a surprise to see the police,” she said.”

Mark Brooks, who works on nearby Roman Road, said: “It’s a nice area round here, and I’ve never seen anything like that before. I was a bit shocked to see the police presence on the way in to work today.”

A woman who said she lived nearby but did not want to give her name, said: “There are a lot of multi-occupancy houses round here, it is a bit of a bedsitland. But I was horrified to hear what has happened because it is usually pretty much crime free, other than things like garden ornaments being nicked.”
