Three more youths have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 51-year-old man in Doncaster.

Jerry Appicella's body was found inside a property on Craganour Place in Denaby on Sunday morning after police were called about concerns for his welfare.

Two boys and a 19-year-old man are now in custody, bringing the total of those arrested to seven.

Three girls held on suspicion of murder were released under investigation, while a boy was bailed.

Their ages have not been released.

Detectives said a post-mortem examination showed Mr Appicella had died as a result of head injuries.

Officers believe it was a targeted attack and appealed for anyone with information to contact the police on 101 or Crimestoppers.
