Three men have been arrested and bailed by police investigating an unexplained death near Selby.

If you were present and have not yet come forward, I urge you to contact the police straight away, as you may have vital information that could help my investigation.

“I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the man being assaulted or noticed a disturbance and urge them to get in touch.”
