Three people have been arrested after a teenage boy was found dead near a reservoir in Sheffield.

The body of 17-year-old Terry Lee Hurst was found by Broomhead Reservoir, Stocksbridge, on Tuesday.

Police said the teenager, last known to be living in the Shire Green and Penistone area, had been stabbed as well as suffering broken bones.

Two 17-year-old boys and a 15-year-old girl were arrested on Thursday. They are being at separate police stations.

A spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police revealed that the victim had been camping near Broomhead Reservoir the night before his body was discovered.

She said: "It is too early to say if there was any motive for the murder or whether the incident happened at the spot where Terry's body was found."

Forensic examinations were continuing at the scene, she added.
