A 45-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man found near a primary school in Sheffield.

Simon Holdsworth's body was discovered by a member of the public in land off Birley Spa Lane in Hackenthorpe, Sheffield, on 17 December.

The 36-year-old died as a result of head injuries.

Shaun Richard Wainwright, of Dagnam Road, has been remanded in custody until 10 July when he is due to appear before Sheffield Crown Court.

Mr Holdsworth, who had been due to get married, was last seen getting on a bus after leaving work at about 23:00 GMT the previous day.

South Yorkshire Police appealed for information on the BBC's Crimewatch programme in March.
