INQUESTS are expected to be opened today in to the unrelated deaths of two men, whose bodies were found last weekend in the Dearne area.

The men were named locally as 40-year old Shaun Taylor, who was found early on Friday morning on Bartholomew Street, Wombwell, and John Boardman, 53, of Deightonby Street, Thurnscoe, whose body was discovered there on Sunday.

Police are not treating the deaths as suspicious.

It is the second death on Bartholomew Street within two months. The body of 41-year-old Shane Beadling, of Potterdyke Avenue, Rawmarsh, was found on July 20. A 32-year old man has been charged with murder and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, and a 31-year old woman with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
