Eight other arrests have been made in connection with the murder probe. 

Tom, a talented boxer, was shot in his chest and abdomen in the gun attack.

He received emergency first aid at the scene and was rushed to hospital but could not be saved.

Hundreds of mourners attended his funeral last week but his brother, Charlie, who is serving a prisoner, had his application to attend the service turn down.

Instead, he was allowed a visit to the chapel of rest where Tom’s body lay the day before the funeral.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
