Highways chiefs’ reassurance over danger roads HIGHWAYS bosses who have been criticised for ‘failing to act’ at accident blackspots across Barnsley have reiterated their commitment to carrying out work at worst-hit roads. Barnsley Council’s highways team is set to compile a list of roads earmarked for improvements to be carried out during the next financial year after working at spots including Copster Lane, Oxspring, Pontefract Road, Lundwood and Laithes Lane, Athersley. Campaigners on Burton Road, Monk Bretton, Birthwaite Hill, Darton and Sandy Bridge Lane, Shafton, have all been unsuccessful in achieving anti-speeding measures and criticised the council for ‘only acting when there’s a fatality’. Dave North, chairman of Shafton Parish Council, said: “When you cross the border into West Yorkshire, it’s completely different as there’s masses of signs warning people to slow down. We can’t keep waiting and hoping there isn’t a fatality before we act.” However, the council says a perceived high crash rate on each road is predominately down to driver error, according to official figures, and its engineers are ‘powerless’ to stop that. Matthew Bell, head of highways engin-

eering at the council, added: “Our road network covers a distance which is the equivalent of a journey from here to Switzerland and it continues to grow with the addition of new housing. It’s the council’s most valuable asset so we do take it very seriously. “To say that we only take action when there’s a fatality is simply not true. We’re aware of areas of Barnsley where there’s complaints about specific roads, such as Birthwaite Hill and Sandy Bridge Lane. We are not saying accidents don’t occur at these locations but the data, which is continually checked, suggests there are worse roads in the borough which require our attention first.” A total of 608 collisions were recorded across the town last year, down by 15 per cent on the previous year, while Barnsley is averaging six road deaths per year over the last three years. “On any road there’s a small minority of drivers who choose to drive beyond the limit and in some cases beyond their own ability,” added Matthew. “The vast majority of road users stick to the safe limit, but those who do not make it very difficult for us as we cannot control their behaviour when they’re behind the wheel.”

Q FIRE DRILL: A 15-YEAR-OLD girl is the only registered female amateur boxer in Barnsley and wants to help encourage others to take up the sport. Maisie Marsland, a student from Darton Academy who trains four times a week at Keel ABC off Harborough Hill Road, said: “I’m proud that I do a sport which is not as popular as some others. I look up to boxers such as Nicola Adams and I want to encourage other girls to join in.”

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a street in Royston after several cars were deliberately set alight on Friday night. The fire on Midland Road was reported to the emergency services just before midnight, with four cars, along with two small sheds that were nearby, set on fire. Crews from Cudworth, Barnsley and Tankersley spent more than an hour dealing with the blaze, which was logged as deliberate. They were only able to come away from the scene at 1.40am on Saturday.

Man reunited with lifesaving girls... A GRATEFUL wife said she was ‘over the moon’ when she and her husband were united with two girls who helped save his life. Corrinne and Harry Roberts, of Lancaster Street, put an appeal in the Barnsley Chronicle at the end of March after Harry collapsed while walking up Peel Street in Barnsley town centre. Harry, 78, had not been feeling well and fainted while walking to the bank. He was taken to Barnsley Hospital and was then transferred to the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield, where he had emergency surgery to remove part of his intestine – which was found to be rotting. Although Harry had fainted, Corrinne did say he remembered two good samaritans who stopped to check on him and called an ambulance. The couple wanted to thank the pair and approached the Chronicle for help.

After the appeal was in the paper, a schoolgirl and her friend came forward to say it was them who had helped Harry. Olivia Bamford and Katelyn Rollinson, who are 15 and 14 and attend Horizon School, said they saw Harry on the floor, called an ambulance and stayed with him until it arrived. Olivia said: “Me and my friend went into town after school and we saw Harry collapsed and people were stood round him but no one appeared to be doing anything, so we called an ambulance and then we waited with him.” Olivia’s mum, Carolyn Hodkin, of Stairfoot, said: “I’m really proud of Olivia and Katelyn. Olivia messaged me saying he had collapsed and because I’m a nurse, I told them what to do. “I told her to check his breathing and do all the necessary checks and then to stay with him until the ambulance came. “It might make people think

about stopping to check on someone who is collapsed in the street as more often than not, they think it’s drug or alcohol induced, but that isn’t always the case.” The two girls and Katelyn’s parents went to Corrinne and n Harry Roberts meets Olivia Bamford and Katelyn Rollinson. Harry’s house to meet the couple. Olivia and Katelyn given flowers and cards with a reward in. “I am so thankful to them,” said Corrinne. “It was lovely to meet them. Harry spent a lot of time chatting with the girls and I spoke to Katelyn’s parents, who were lovely. We talked about what happened and what the girls did to help Harry. We are so thankful to them. “They are lovely girls and they have been brought up well. They both go to Horizon School, which is near where we live, so we said they are welcome to drop in anytime.”


Former pub blighted by firebugs AN EMPTY pub set to be turned into housing by developers has been repeatedly targeted by arsonists. The Angel, on High Street, Bolton-upon-Dearne, has been hit by firebugs three times in the last nine days. In the first incident last Wednesday, firefighters from Dearne were called at 5.50pm after reports of a small rubbish fire. Then on Sunday at 3.15pm, a large amount of waste left outside the pub after prevous renovation was set alight, with firefighters spending more than an hour dealing with the blaze. And on Monday two crews – one from Dearne and the other from Rotherham – were called at 6.20pm to tackle a fire started in a pile of rubbish on the first floor of the derelict building. All three are believed to have

been started deliberately. Dearne South councillor Charlotte Johnson said she had spoken to residents, who were concerned the pub could become an ongoing safety issue. “If people are going in and setting things on fire, there’s obviously a safety issue for them and everyone around the pub,” said Coun Johnson. “It’s a historic part of Bolton,

it’s the first thing you see as you drive into the village. “It’s a beautiful building but as it currently it stands, it doesn’t create the best impression.” The Angel is currently the subject of a planning proposal by Lewis Monfredi of Wath Construction, under which it will be converted into two three-bedroom dwellings, alongside eight other houses around the pub.

The games go on for Layton thanks to fans think this would go as far as it did. “Steve asked to set up a JustGiving page for Layton so we set it up and we put on a picture of me and Layton together. “I donated to it and a few other people supported it – the target was £300 but I said lower the target and I can get one cheaper – so we lowered it.

GENEROUS Reds fans have shown their support for an autistic boy who lost his game console at a football match. Last month while attending the Doncaster v Barnsley match at the Keepmoat Stadium, ten-year-old Layton lost his Nintendo Switch – something which he finds great comfort in and a distraction when things around him get too much. In an attempt to find the lost console and hoping someone had handed it in, Layton’s mum, Leanne Kelly, posted on social media asking if anyone had seen it – and to her surprise, the post went viral. One evening she received a message from a Reds fan called Steve Marshall who asked if he could set up a JustGiving page to help raise money to buy Layton a new Nintendo – she then got another message from another supporter, Ian Langworthy, who offered to donate Layton a Nintendo Switch. “I was so overwhelmed,” explained Leanne. “I put it on Facebook in the hope that somebody would have picked it up, my boy was so distressed and I didn’t

Housing could be held up by appeals TEN housing developers – including a string of household names – have attacked proposals from Barnsley Council which they claim could more than double the cash contributions builders have to make from new projects. It runs the risk of causing major delays through developers appealing against the costs, they say, with the possibility that some major projects may not go ahead at all if the new charging regime is adopted as formal policy. The proposals form supplementary planning documents (SPDs), a portfolio of rules designed to make the process of deciding the details around planning applications smoother. Two suggestions have caused the most alarm among builders, a so-called ‘bedroom tax’ which would see a charge of up to £1,500 per bedroom imposed on new developments to support sustainable transport projects

and new rules around how much developers should pay towards the burden new families would place on schools in an area. The SPDs are meant to support the authority’s local plan, which was adopted in January after years of work and earmarks areas opened up for housing projects until the mid-2030s. Government targets have been set for the numbers of new homes to be built within the next five years and the council has been told in a letter from Leeds consultants Johnson Mowat – representing developers including Persimmon, David Wilson Homes and Barratt, Taylor Wimpey and more local firms including Orion Homes and Yorkshire Land – that their proposals could jeopardise those targets. A letter spelling out the companies’ fears says: “Our calculations suggest the typical major sites SPD contribution would increase from £3,922 per dwell-

ing under the existing SPDs to £8,100 per dwelling under the proposed SPDs. “This doubling will impact on the viability of many schemes and no doubt delay delivery.” They fear, if the proposals are introduced, developers will become bogged down in legal appeals, a process likely to delay developments by 18 months. Matthew Gladstone, a Barnsley Council executive director, said: “The council is considering responses to the recent consultation and inevitably some supplementary planning documents have provoked more comments than others. “Any amendments made as a result of the comments received will be reported to cabinet and full council in due course. “In terms of current planning applications, these are being assessed against the policies in our newly adopted local plan with each application being considered on its own merits.”

CCTV images have been released following a knife attack in which a man was injured. On Saturday February 16 in the early hours, the victim had split up an altercation between his group of friends and another group of men. Later, at around 3.30am, the victim was standing alone in a taxi queue at the bottom of Market Hill when it’s reported that he was approached from behind and his neck was slashed. The weapon is believed to have been a Stanley knife. He was rushed to Barnsley Hospital and received stitches for wounds to his neck. Officers have carried out numerous

Did you witness woodland incident? AN investigation has been launched after a man was found with severe facial injuries in Wombwell Woods. At 5pm on Tuesday April 16, a dog walker found a 30-year-old man seriously injured in Wombwell woods near to Woodhead Lane. The dog walker is said to have given the man directions to Hoyland and officers are keen to speak to the person who helped the man, as he could assist with enquiries. A police spokesperson said: “Police also want to speak to anyone who

A police spokesperson said: “The men are pictured here on CCTV walking along Wellington Street 10 to 15 minutes after the incident took place. “We believe the men pictured could hold important information and are urging them, or anyone who recognises them, to get in touch. “If you can help, please call 101 quoting Investigation Number 14/32891/19. You can also give information to Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.”

The exact circumstances around how the man sustained his injuries are still being investigated but officers suspect he may have been assaulted. “If you can help please call 101 quoting incident number 659 of April 17. You can also pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”

At what stage should a landlord evict a tenant who hasn’t paid rent? A LANDLORD was fined for unlawfully evicting a tenant, leaving him homeless. He was prosecuted after denying the tenant access to the premises he had a right to occupy. We asked We are Barnsley followers their thoughts on this, and these were their responses... Andrew Griffiths: “You don’t pay your rent, you get evicted. The law should be on the landlord’s side. You still have mortgage payments to make, even if you don’t get rent in. The courts should have given the landlord compensation and costs.” Michael Short: “Landlords are not contributing anything useful to society. They have no skills they are contributing, they simply own a house that they will let people live in for inflated charges.” Ana David: “I think people need to understand there are laws in place for a reason. You can’t just do whatever you want even if it is your house. People who get a house on mortgage then rent it should be informed of what the law says if they don’t want to end up like him.” Emma Day: “As a landlord myself I would try and help the tenant and find out why they can’t pay the rent. I would never just kick someone on to street but I’ve had ones who have had no intention at all to pay because they are spending their money elsewhere. If it was a family in need with children I’d help them out all day long.”


Leeanne Fletcher: “The system doesn’t work, although it’s sad he was made homeless, how much has it cost the landlord already?” Susan Skene: “If you don’t pay your rent then you deserve to be evicted.” Ian Berry: “If some one doesn’t pay rent they should be evicted and never be given a house again. If that means living on the street, tough.” Mark Baker: “It’s a joke... A man doesn’t pay his rent and the landlord is the one who gets fined for it? Welcome to the British justice system where the ones in the wrong have all the rights.” Nathan Allsopp: “It’s not that simple. People are out of work everywhere and it’ll get hard to keep on top of bills etc. Nobody should be denied their possessions or be made homeless under circumstances most likely beyond their control.” Steve Juhasz: “He should have gone through an agent, they give protection and advice for both the landlord and tenant.” Mark Baker: “The only thing the landlord did wrong was to not allow the tenant to collect their belongings. The fact the law takes the tenant’s side is a a slap in the face to every landlord. The courts have basically said it’s perfectly fine to not pay your rent and the landlord shouldn’t be allowed to kick you out. If a tenant breaks the terms of their contract by not paying rent on time and in full, they should be evicted.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, April 30, 2019 –

This was the WAB week... Easter has been and gone, but it won’t be too long before the next holiday THE Easter festivities are finally over and the children are back at school. Don’t you find as a parent the novelty of having them at home grinds after a few days? Don’t get me wrong I love spending time with my child, but waving her off at school yesterday felt wonderful! This weekend we went to Mablethorpe and Skegness. The amount of money I spent on the 2p machines was not funny in hindsight. We managed to get quite a few tickets and traded them in for little prizes. The amount of tickets you need for a teddy bear is laughable

really. These beach resorts know how to make you spend money. But we had a wonderful time and there was no rain on Sunday so we were able to enjoy the rides, which was a bonus. Now it’s back to reality, although before you know it the next half-term break will be upon us and then it won’t be long until the summer holidays... If you have any ideas on what to do to keep the children entertained, let me know :) This Friday we’ll be welcoming Tour de Yorkshire to Bansley. I’m super excited to see everyone around Tarn and enjoy the fantastic atmosphere we’ll have. The weather’s not even

expected to be that bad on Friday, which is of course a bonus. It’s the final week we’ll be accepting applications for Young Champions. If you have a child up to the age of 21 who has done something amazing to shout about, put them forward for a nomination. It’s been inspiring reading and speaking to people who have achieved many amazing things at a young age. They deserve to be recognised and Young Champions is the perfect occasion to do so. Send your nominations to ’Ave a good week! Altine.

YOU love showing off pictures of your pets and we love seeing adorable photos of them. Here’s a round-up of this week’s papped pets! Winnie.

Stendel’s stars one win from promotion BARNSLEY are a win away from promotion after a 2-1 success over Blackpool which completed an unbeaten league season at Oakwell. The visitors took the lead after a quarter of an hour, then Cauley Woodrow levelled before the break and Liam Lindsay’s first League One goal of the season secured the win. Portsmouth drew 1-1 at Sunderland, which leaves thirdplaced Pompey four points behind the Reds while fourth-placed Sunderland are six behind. Both sides have games in hand on Tuesday but will be not be able to catch Barnsley as long as Daniel Stendel’s side win at Bristol Rovers on the final day. If both fail to win in midweek, the Reds will be promoted with a game to spare. The Reds could also win the title after drawing level on points with Luton Town, who lost 2-1 at Burton Albion, but still have a better goal difference by four. Daniel Stendel kept the team which won 3-0 at Plymouth Argyle on Monday and they finished their home campaign with 15 wins and eight draws from 23 games. After a quiet start to the game, the visitors took the lead on 15 minutes. A cross from the right was cleverly nudged on by Armand Gnanduillet to Harry Pritchard, whose 15-yard shot from the left of the box took a large deflection and nestled in the bottom left corner. Barnsley responded very well to going behind and were well on top for the remainder of the first half. Mamadou Thiam missed a huge chance to level just three minutes later when he headed Jordan Williams’ cross over the bar five yards out in a central position. Ethan Pinnock headed one of several early Cameron McGeehan corners wide well while, at the other end, Gnanduillet dragged a low shot well off-target in the box. McGeehan then fired a 22-yard shot just wide of the bottom left corner after a clever pass by Mike Bahre before Blackpool’s Ben Heneghan headed well over the bar. Thiam then missed a superb chance when Alex Mowatt’s excellent 40-yard pass put him clean through on goal on the left of the box but goalkeeper Christopher Mafoumbi produced a good one-onone save. Barnsley eventually levelled on 39 minutes when, after a long passing move down the left wing, the ball fell to Woodrow just outside the box and he turned before shooting into the bottom left corner from 20 yards for his 19th goal of the season. The Reds were dealt a blow just before half-time when Jacob Brown was brought off with an injury and replaced by Kieffer Moore. That meant Bahre moved from behind the striker to right wing and Moore joined Woodrow up front. Thiam volleyed a difficult chance over the bar from just inside the

box in first half injury-time but Barnsley went in at the break having been the better team. Early in the second half, Bahre headed a Mowatt cross just over the bar from eight yards out then Thiam forced Mafoumbi into another good save as he clawed a 25-yard shot out of his top left corner. The Reds took the lead just before the hour-mark when Lindsay headed in McGeehan’s impressive left-sided corner at the near post five yards out. Woodrow then had two excellent chances to make it 3-1, firing wide on the turn inside the box from Thiam’s low left-wing cross then blazing over on the right of the box after Blackpool lost the ball deep in their half. Blackpool’s Pritchard tried to score his second of the match when a corner was cleared to him on 75 minutes but his 20-yard shot lacked power and Davies saved with ease. Moore then produced an incredible miss with ten minutes remaining, volleying a McGeehan corner over the bar from four yards out with the goal gaping and no one marking him. Barnsley (4-4-1-1): Davies; J Williams, Pinnock, Lindsay, Pinillos; Brown (Moore 44mins), Mowatt, McGeehan, Thiam (Hedges 87); Bahre (Styles 90+3); Woodrow. Unused: Walton, Jackson, Fryers, Green. Goals: Woodrow 39, Lindsay 59. Blackpool (4-2-3-1): Mafoumbi; Nottingham, Tilt, Heneghan, Bola; Evans (Feeney 59mins), Spearing; Thompson, Pritchard (Long 85), Kirby (Delfouneso HT); Gnanduillet. Unused: Boney, Anderton, Guy, Ryan. Yellow cards: Evans. Goals: Pritchard 15.
