Two arrested over death of man who was dropped off at Bassetlaw Hospital

Two men have been arrested over the death of a man shortly after he was dropped off outside a hospital in Worksop.

The 23-year-old was apparently fit and well when he was dropped off outside the maternity ward of Bassetlaw District General Hospital last Tuesday night.

He then suffered a fatal brain injury and collapsed outside the general entrance 45 minutes later.

Detectives, who are still trying to establish how he died, have arrested two men, aged 28 and 59, in connection with the incident.

We are continuing to investigate this death, which still very much remains unexplained.

“The family of this young man deserve to know what happened to their loved one.

“If you were on the hospital site, between the entrance to the maternity ward and the main Kilton Hill entrance that evening and recall seeing anything out of the ordinary, pick up the phone and call us.”

Sam Walker named as final Team GB table tennis athlete for Rio

The British Olympic Association has today named Sam Walker, Worksop, as the third table tennis athlete to be selected to Team GB for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The 21-year-old will compete in the team event alongside Paul Drinkhall and Liam Pitchford – after both were officially selected for the individual competition earlier this month.

Walker will be the youngest of the three table tennis athletes selected for Rio 2016 but has experience of competition at the top level.

It’s a dream come true. It’s been one of my dreams since I started playing to represent Team GB at the Olympic Games and to get it so early in my career is incredible. I’m looking forward to it.

The Worlds gave us confidence and belief – we did believe we could get those sort of results but doing it was a different story. It showed us and everyone else that Great Britain are a team to be feared and are ready to challenge for medals in big competitions.
