Three arrested on suspicion of murder

Three men from Doncaster have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a 56-year-old man who went missing two years ago. Thomas Christopher Groome was last seen on New Year's Day 2010 after spending the Christmas of 2009 with family in Barnsley and New Year celebrations with family in Doncaster.

He told them he was intending to settle in Portugal and start up a small business but the family became concerned when they were unable to make contact with him over the following months and reported him as missing to police in England and Portugal.

Police would like to hear from anyone that has any knowledge of Mr Groome's movements or any sightings of his distinctive left-hand drive, black, sporty-looking VW Golf after 1 January, 2010.
