The search for a missing man has been called off after a body was pulled from a canal in Knottingley.

Police divers were looking for 29-year-old Gary Stephen, who had gone missing from his home in the town on December 4.

A body removed from the Knottingley and Goole canal on Tuesday has yet to be formally identified.

But police said Mr Stephen’s family had been notified.
