The Doncaster Free Press offices have been subject to an attempted break-in.

The office on the corner of Printing Office Street and Cleveland Street was closed for more than three hours following the incident overnight.

Staff turning up for work this morning discovered the front door buckled - leaving workers stranded outside.

Police and maintenance workers were called to the offices, which the Free Press moved into just over two years ago.

During the disruption, staff were not able to answer telephone calls, emails or public callers to the office. We apologise for the inconvenience.

Journalists and advertising staff worked remotely while a locksmith was called to carry out repairs to the door.
