Two people have been charged with the murder of a teenage mother whose body was found in a South Yorkshire canal.

The 17-year-old, who had a four-month-old daughter, died from stab injuries.

Police said a 21-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy had been charged with murder and would appear before Rotherham magistrates later.
