Death of little Conley Thompson (7) at Barnsely building site not suspicious

By PA Reporter

No suspicious circumstances surround the death of seven-year-old Conley Thompson, whose body was found on a building site, police have said.

The youngster died when he got stuck in a vertical plastic pipe and his clothing restricted his breathing on the site near Barnsley.

South Yorkshire Police said there was “no suggestion of any third party involvement”.

Conley vanished after playing with friends in Locke Park, a mile from the site and about two miles from his home in Barnsley.

Officers had checked the building site in the hours of darkness after Conley was reported missing on Sunday night, but they found it to be securely locked, with a large perimeter fence.
