POLICE have identified the man who was allegedly murdered in Wombwell last week.

Shane Beadling, of Rawmarsh, was found dead at a house on Bartholomew Street.

His family said: "Shane was the kind of person who would do anything for anyone, and he had many friends in the area where he lived. Shane had his problems, and tended to move around a lot, but he always kept in touch with his family, and we will miss him terribly. “Shane's death has left his family heartbroken and devastated. The family would like their privacy to be respected during this sad time." Officers were called at around 9.40pm on July 21, where they discovered Shane. A post mortem revealed he had died of multiple injuries.

Two people have appeared in court in connection to the incident.
