POLICE searching for a man who went swimming in a reservoir on the outskirts of Barnsley have found his body.

The 38-year-old, who is believed to be from Huddersfield, had been camping with a friend at Snailsden reservoir near Dunford Bridge when he went for a swim but failed to return on Saturday night.

South and West Yorkshire Police forces and the fire service mounted a search effort.

A police helicopter, the two forces' dogs and underwater search officers assisted and police recovered a body from the water at around 4.05pm on Sunday.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said the man's family have been informed and the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Don't forget the Mountain Rescue who were called out too searching in the darkness - all volunteers. A sad end...
