Concern for missing Doncaster boy, aged 16

Missing: Leo Watson

Police in Doncaster say they are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing 16-year-old boy.

Leo Watson was last seen on the evening of March 16th in the Intake area. He is around 5ft 4ins tall, slim, and was wearing matching khaki-coloured hooded sports jacket and jogging bottoms, grey trainers with a tan stripe on them and a baseball cap, believed to be navy.

Officers also believe Leo may have had access to a vehicle, a dark blue Renault Megane with the registration number HN55 VVG, or a bright orange Equalizer bicycle with black lettering.

They would like to hear from anyone who may know where Leo is - or has seen this car or bicycle.

'Devastated' family appeals for witnesses to fatal accident

Scene of fatal accident

The devastated family of a 62-year-old woman killed in a hit and run accident in Doncaster are urging witnesses or anyone with information to contact police.

Susan Gravel died following a collision with a silver or grey BMW car in Station Road at Stainforth at 12.55pm yesterday afternoon (March 11th). The driver failed to stop.

A joint statement from the family reads: "Our family has lost the most loving, caring sister, mother, aunty and grandmother. We appeal to anyone with information that may help to trace the driver to please come forward. We have been left devastated by our loss."

The car believed to have been stolen and officers are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or seen a similar vehicle in the area to contact them.

The BMW, thought to have been displaying a registration plate with the prefix HV07, collided with a parked vehicle on Station Road, before the collision.

Prior to both collisions, the BMW was seen leaving the Asda car park on Station Road, close to where officers in an unmarked police car were patrolling.

The police vehicle was not actively pursuing the BMW when the collisions occurred, however the incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission due to the earlier involvement of officers from South Yorkshire Police.

We urgently need people to contact us who may have seen the car involved, whether it was before, during or after the collision. Understandably, Susan’s family has been left devastated by its loss and we need to interview the BMW driver as soon as possible. If you were the driver or know them, contact us now.
