Jail for attack on officers A MAN who assaulted two female Barnsley police officers during an attack in the early hours of last Tuesday has been jailed for 44 weeks. Kane Taylor, from Monk Bretton, was witnessed driving a car ‘erratically’ on Lamb Lane in the village at about 2am last Tuesday, November 26. The two female PCs – who were out in their patrol car at the time – pulled the 32-year-old over but he became verbally and physically aggressive. At Barnsley Magistrates’ Court last week, District Judge Joanne Hirst was told that Taylor, pictured, laid on top of an officer and forced his fingers into her eyes while she lay helpless on the floor and struck another officer across her face. Both officers attended Barnsley Hospital to be checked over. They were later discharged and despite their injuries, they returned to work the next evening. Taylor pleaded guilty to two counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker, taking a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent, driving without insurance, driving while disqualified

and failing to provide a specimen of breath. A police spokesperson said: “The sentencing of Taylor sends out a strong message to those who think it is acceptable to assault officers while they’re on duty. “Officers expect and frequently deal with challenging and difficult situations, but it is not part of their job to be physically attacked. “Throughout court Taylor showed complete disregard for police and the court staff, and throughout his time in custody he was abusive and violent. “We hope this sentencing will act as a reminder that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated and will act as some form of consolation to the officers affected.” An internal probe is expected to begin at South Yorkshire Police, which will see force bosses outline plans to reduce rising cases of attacks on its officers which rose by 13 per cent in 2018/19. Chief Inspector Andy Berriman added: “I’m delighted with the sentence and I’d like to thank members of the public for their messages of support.”

Flood damage is unavoidable MORE than £2m has been spent on protecting Barnsley from flooding in the last decade and ‘difficult challenges are ahead’ due to it being impossible to fully prevent future cases, the council has warned. Since widespread flooding in 2007 – which affected more than 350 properties – Barnsley Council has invested about £2.2m above its normal maintenance budget on extra flood defence work. This, the council claims, has been a ‘major contributing factor’ to reducing the number of flooded properties to approximately 100 last month despite similar river levels recorded, particularly at the depth gauges on the Dearne at Darton and Grange Lane and on the Dove at Worsbrough. However, the council warned ‘difficult challenges are ahead’ due to it not being possible to prevent flooding entirely but the issue – which will be discussed by councillors on a scrutiny board on Tuesday – remains a high priority due to the most recent incident on November 7. “There are difficult challenges ahead as it is not

possible to do everything, and part of the council’s strategy is to help floodprone communities to help themselves,” a report said. “In practice, the council will not undertake all the work and has worked with communities to understand that resilience and self-reliance can better manage flooding to minimise any impact it may have. In light of recent events, the council will also review procedures for responding to future flooding. “The council’s strategic approach endeavours to reduce the risk of flooding, while acknowledging that in some cases the risk cannot be totally eliminated. “We will continue to work with affected communities and local residents to raise awareness of their responsibilities and to help them to help themselves rather than placing their sole reliance on the council.” Gullies – often brought up by residents due to their tendency to overflow during poor weather – are cleansed on a ten-month cycle by the council’s in-house operations team.

However, there has been ‘a historical lack of cleansing of drainage kerbs’ due to difficulties with access and lack of resources which has led to significant flooding of the highway network over a number of years. This has now been recognised, the report said, and an additional £1m has been approved for the 2020/21 financial year to carry out cleansing and other associated maintenance works to these features and other assets. The report added: “In June 2007, Barnsley was affected by heavy and sustained rainfall which continued for a ten-day period leading up to the first flood. “Many of these neighbourhoods had not experienced flooding before and were poorly prepared for responding to flooding. In total, 352 properties, including commercial properties, flooded. “The impact in these localities ranged from between 50mm up to one metre of water flowing into properties. In many cases properties were affected by diluted, untreated raw sewage which had contaminated the flood waters, when

waste water treatment installations and combined sewers were overwhelmed by the run-off flows. “The council is also working with developers to design not just flood resistant development but flood resilient development should flooding occur.” Other areas in line for work, apart from Darton, have been identified as Lundwood, Darfield, Bolton-upon-Dearne, Low Valley and Aldham Bridge. “As a result of the most recent flooding event, the process has now begun of debriefing the response and initial recovery with a view to identifying organisational learning,” the report said. “Investigation into the source of flooding in primary affected areas is currently being undertaken and it would be premature at this stage to make presumptions regarding this. “The management of flood risk in the borough is key to the council being able to realise its aspirations for economic growth. Achievement of those aspirations requires a partnership approach to ensure that development is sustainable and works to reduce flood risk.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, December 3, 2019 –

Green travel network vision BARNSLEY has been included in a ‘ground-breaking’ application which is aiming to secure £227m to improve the town’s transport infrastructure to encourage people to ditch their cars. The bid, submitted by the Sheffield City Region on Wednesday, has a focus on encouraging active travel, including plans for new cycle routes between Barnsley and the Dearne Valley, other walking and cycling routes, as well as railway station upgrades. “I want to see a world-class public transport system connecting Barnsley, Sheffield, Doncaster and Rotherham,” said Dan Jarvis, Mayor of Sheffield City Region and Labour parliamentary candidate for Barnsley Central. “This will supercharge our economy, clean up our air, mitigate our climate impact and reduce inequality and exclusion. “Submission of our

finalised bid puts us in a very strong position to secure almost a quarter of a billion pounds in funding – an overdue step towards tackling the scandalous under investment which has long held Barnsley and our region back.” Improvements under the plan also include a new ‘bus rapid transit’ (BRT) service between Barnsley and Doncaster, connecting the only remaining urban centres in the area without a high quality public transport link. Dan added: “We have to make it easier for people to get out of their cars and onto their bikes or their feet as the benefits are clear. “It will help people lead healthier and more empowered lives by freeing them from unnecessary dependence on their cars, reduce the pollution which is especially damaging to kids and the elderly, and help tackle congestion which is costing us dearly in lost growth and

wasted productivity.” Barnsley Council’s strategy is to reduce pollution levels and bosses are aiming to achieve a zero carbon borough by 2040 - ten years sooner than the government is aiming for nationally - as air pollution has been cited as the fourth biggest threat to public health after cancer, heart disease and obesity. A ruling cabinet meeting held earlier this month was told that many commuters’ journeys are less than five miles, so the council believes enticing them to ditch cars in favour of public transport, or active travel, will help towards that. “Better transport is key to future as it improves our quality of life, the attractiveness of Barnsley and the region for businesses and residents alike. “This is an important step, but it is only the beginning of what I want to do to transform our transport infrastructure.”

Patients raise awareness BARNSLEY Hospital took part in World Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Day to raise awareness of the condition. Patients Max Deacey, 77, of Nanny Marr Road, Darfield and Bruce McKenzie, 76, of Houghton Road, Thurnscoe, who both have the disease, spent time in the hospital restaurant with respiratory nurses to offer information about the condition.

COPD is a type of lung disease which causes long-term breathing problems. The disease typically worsens over time, but there are ways of keeping it under control. Respiratory nurse Ria Ellis said: “The first line of treatment is cutting out whatever caused the COPD, often smoking. It’s important to do gentle exercise if you can and to eat a healthy diet.”

Police’s town clampdown pays off

Operation Barossa hailed as big success as patrol officers double A CRIME clampdown which saw patrol efforts double in Barnsley town centre over a four-day period has been hailed as a success. Operation Barossa took place last week and resulted in 25 stop and searches, 19 people being dispersed under the town centre-wide public space protection order, six fixed penalty notices issued and four arrests for antisocial behaviour-related offences. Sergeant Steph Coverley told a crime meeting yesterday: “It was a big hit for us and the public, as effectively it was a doubling of police officers within the town centre area. “We worked alongside Barnsley Council’s Safer Neighbourhood Service staff, making full use of their CCTVequipped vehicle, and focused on antisocial behaviour around Peel Square and Market Hill.” Instances of antisocial behaviour continue to be on a downward spiral, according to the police, who recently moved some of its staff to a hub within The Glass Works redevelopment. A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary after a short foot chase through Peel Square by officers. The man was interviewed but later released without charge. A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of driving while unfit through drink or drugs outside the town cen-

tre’s Post Office, after the vehicle was seen being driven in an erratic manner. A small amount of class B drugs were also found in his possession. A 44-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly. A 33-year-old man was arrested after a short foot chase on suspicion of shoplifting. He was charged and remanded to appear at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court at a later date. A police spokesperson added: “We focused our attention on the Peel Square areas following concerns from businesses and members of the public. “The presence of the officers resulted in a significant reduction in antisocial behaviour. “The CCTV cameras within the town centre have recently been upgraded and are continuously monitored by skilled operators. “These operators feed directly into our neighbourhood team officers and this real-time information enables them to respond quickly to incidents of antisocial behaviour or suspected drug dealing. “While a few individuals displayed their unhappiness at our officers being in the town centre by spitting at their cars, the majority of people stopped to talk to officers, thanking them and sharing their appreciation.”

LOOKING FORWARD: Members of the FAB group. Left: Maddie Scott at Kingswood.

Kids will get special prom date A CHRISTMAS prom is being held for disabled children who may not otherwise be given the opportunity to attend their school prom. The FAB group is made up of parents and carers for disabled children across Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster who have Down’s syndrome, autism and other complex medical needs. The group wants children to be able to experience activities that their peers have the opportunity to do, so parents and carers came together and formed the group last year and take children on residential and activity days. One child, Maddie Scott, 11, of Dodworth, has been part of the

group since it was founded last year. She has global development delay and other complex needs. Her mum, Pauline Scott, said: “Laura Wilburn, who founded the group, has been Maddie’s teaching assistant for over three years. She attends Greenacre school but has never had the opportunities that she is getting with The Fab Group. “Maddie can’t access ordinary group things and she can’t be left alone because she’s a runner. She has no awareness of danger and she is very behind her peers. It can be hard to find things for her to do that she enjoys. “Through FAB she was able to

go on a residential to Kingswood, where she went on a zip wire, practised archery and went on a climbing wall. Seeing the pictures of her having fun and doing things that her peers can experience is amazing. “I am so excited for her to be part of the prom. I’ve never seen her in a big dress and it’s an amazing event that has been planned and it will be a great opportunity for them to dance and enjoy themselves.” The prom is being held at Mount Pleasant Hotel in Doncaster, and the venue has allowed them to use it for free. The group is currently trying to raise funds and

secure free transport, decorations, hair supplies and catering for the red carpet event. Laura said: “The prom is an opportunity for the children to enjoy themselves and experience something they wouldn’t ordinarily have the opportunity to have. We have had a few companies approach us and a hairdresser who specialises in doing hair for disabled children but we are still in need of transport and other things. “I founded this group with the aim of allowing the ‘forgotten children’ to do what other children are able to do. In addition to the prom, I plan to take them on residential and day trips and we’re

constantly raising funds to enable us to achieve these dreams for the children. A lot of our clients need two-to-one support in addition to the things they need medically when we go away so it’s a lot to consider and organise but as a team we are adamant to give these children these opportunities and make their dreams come true. Our next plan is to hopefully take the children to Disneyland Paris.” If you are able to help with supplies for the prom send a message to The FAB Group Fundraising page on Facebook. To donate to the charity, visit the Go Fund Me website and type in Laura Wilburn.

Emma’s hope for global trip... A CARING sister has launched a fundraiser to help her sibling with cancer travel the world. In May of this year, Emma Elford, 26, was diagnosed with breast cancer, which left her and her family devastated. A couple of months later, Emma and her family received more bad news after she was admitted to hospital with chest pains and breathing problems. The cancer had spread to her bones in her sternum and lumbar spine and Emma was given the diagnosis of stage four metastatic breast cancer. Metastatic breast cancer is breast cancer that has spread to another part of the body. Emma, of Darton, doesn’t know how long she has left to live, but her younger sister Laura Elford, 24, has set up a GoFundMe to help her sister travel across the world. Laura, of Honeywell, said: “Emma is just trying to keep positive about everything and has a very positive mindset and outlook. She’s been amazing really but she doesn’t want to know about how long she has left. “There are so many thing she wants to do in her life so we want to try and give her every-

thing we can. “I set up the GoFundMe page to help her fulfil the bucket list to see some places in the world. “If it was me I would want to go everywhere, but Emma wants to go to specific places.” Laura is aiming to raise £10,000 to help her sister travel to New Zealand, Australia, Dubai and Singapore. “Emma wants to go to New Zealand as we have family there. She wants to go to the Gold Coast, in Australia as it was one of our grandparents’ favourite experiences. She has always wanted to go to Dubai and she

wants to visit Singapore as family have stopped there during their connecting flight and stayed over for a couple of nights and brought lots of photos which then made Emma want to visit,” said Laura. However, as well as helping to pay travel costs, the money may also be used to pay for alternative medical treatment for Emma, as there are only two treatments available on the NHS, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Any extra that is raised will go to the charity Breast Cancer Care. “Emma is really into raising funds for Breast Cancer Care. She raised about £480 for them recently by doing a bake sale at her workplace so she’s asked for money to go towards that charity too. “It’s been a bumpy ride, I think Emma has really grabbed the bull by the horns. She’s just so optimistic there will be advances in medicine and when it’s you living with it you can have that mindset. She just wants a normal life. “We just want her to have something to look forward to.” To donate to the GoFundMe page to help Emma, go to the Chronicle’s website to find the link.

A week in WAB history...

Market recognised as one of the UK’s best...

WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, we flash back to what hit the headlines in December last year...

December 10 Market shortlisted as country favourite BARNSLEY Market could be named the nation’s favourite after being shortlisted as one of the top 10 markets in the country. The market was named in the top 10 after a public vote was held by The National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) and they will now compete against nine others to scoop the title of the Britain’s Favourite Market 2018. With the opening of the Glassworks in November, Coun Roy Miller is confident

the market has a good chance of winning. He said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for Barnsley Market as well as our brilliant traders and customers who have continued to support the market through the redevelopment of our town centre. We’re all extremely proud of our famous market, and rightly so. “Winning the award would be the ultimate recognition for our hardworking traders and market team. We look forward to welcoming the judges to Barnsley and showing them what we have to offer.” December 18 Council approves plans for new gyratory system A PLANNING application for a new gyratory traffic system which will see a huge slice of a popular

park destroyed has been provisionally approved by Barnsley Council’s planning regulatory board this afternoon - although it may still have to be approved by a government minister. The plan for the Dodworth Road junction involves creating a new road bypassing a section of Pogmoor Road – cutting through the park. It will mean a stop to vehicles from the motorway turning right onto Broadway, with motorists having to go around the gyratory and back up Dodworth Road. Prior to the application being considered by the council, a request was made to the Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, to ask him to ‘call in’ the application meaning he would become the decision maker. In light of this request, a spokesman said the council

had agreed not to issue the decision pending confirmation from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government as to whether or not the Secretary of State has decided to call in the application. “There are no firm timescales for this decision and a further statement will be issued once the council has clarity,” the spokesman said. December 20 Kids replicate TV show’s success

CHILDREN at a Grimethorpe nursery have been doing their bit to keep the older generation young – by replicating a TV show’s success. Playdays, on Elizabeth Street, teamed up with Angel Court’s staff, a care home on Stacey Crescent in the village and children now visit weekly. Having watched Channel Four’s Old People’s Home For Four-Year-Olds, Natalie Heilds, manager at Playdays, was inspired to do the same in Grimethorpe.

She said: “It inspired us to create our own version, so we contacted Angel Court and now provide stimulating activities for the old and young to enjoy. “More importantly they take part in these activities together, meeting every Monday morning to benefit from craft sessions, baking and decorating, exercises and singing birthday wishes to the residents. “The care home’s loved having the children over and it’s been great to see two generations interacting.”

Delight at last as Reds seal first win in 18 BARNSLEY ended a 17-match league winless run with a 3-1 success over Yorkshire rivals Hull City at Oakwell on Saturday. Alex Mowatt opened the scoring with a superb strike, then Mike Bahre doubled the lead with his first Championship goal. The Tigers pulled one back, but Conor Chaplin’s excellent injurytime volley secured the home win. The bottom-placed Reds have cut the gap between themselves and safety to five points while they are two behind second-bottom Stoke City and four behind third-bottom Wigan Athletic. They were the better team throughout the game and deserved their first victory since the opening day of the season. Gerhard Struber, in his first home game as head coach, made two changes from the side that lost to Middlesbrough three days earlier. Jordan Williams and Aapo Halme returned from injury lay-offs to replace Dimitri Cavare, who dropped out of the squad, and the benched Luke Thomas. It was a diamond formation with Halme in front the back four, Mowatt and Bahre the wide midfielders while Cauley Woodrow played behind strikers Jacob Brown and Chaplin. The first quarter of the match was very dull, with a succession of corners for both teams but no shots except a Woodrow effort from outside the box which sailed over. The opener came in the 23rd minute when, after some pinball in the visitors’ box, Mowatt brilliantly curled a shot from just outside the area into the top left corner. Barnsley thought they should have had a penalty for handball seconds after scoring following a burst into the box by Bahre. Hull had been disappointing in the first half but missed a huge chance to level on 41 minutes when, after hesitant defending by the home centre-backs, top scorer

Jarrod Bowen was through on goal but dragged his effort wide of the bottom left corner. Mowatt tried to net a second long-range strike seconds before the break but his 30-yard free-kick was pushed around the right post by goalkeeper George Long. The Reds had been the better side in the first half with Hull, who came into the match as one of the form sides of the division, well below their best before the break. The visitors had more chances after the interval but the Reds still played at a higher level throughout the match. Hull’s manager, the former Barnsley midfielder Grant McCann, made two chances at half-time including the introduction of Tom Eaves after they did not use a recognised striker in the first half. The Reds thought they had doubled their lead ten minutes after the interval when Chaplin bundled in a Mowatt cross from a yard out but the flag was up for offside. City nearly levelled on 63 minutes after superb work on the left wing by Kamil Grosicki and Eaves who cut the ball back to Bowen, whose 15-yard shot was narrowly wide of the bottom right corner. Brown hooked a volley wide wide from Chaplin’s left-wing cross but soon the hosts doubled the lead on 75 minutes. An excellent step over by Brown opened the visiting defence up then Mowatt played in Bahre who finished nicely for his first goal of the season. The visitors replied on 81 minutes when Grosicki’s left-wing cross was headed back across goal by Eaves and substitute Keane Lewis-Potter nodded in on the line. City did not create a clear chance for a leveller and the hosts secured the win deep in injury-time when they counter-attacked then, after good work by substitute Thomas, Brown’s cross was sensationally volleyed in by Chaplin from the edge of the box.

Wale peaks to win his first internatonal title BRAMPTON fighter Josh Wale claimed his first international belt with arguably the best display of his entire professional career. The 31-year-old featherweight defeated Ghanaian Felix Williams on a majority decision at Ponds Forge in Sheffield last Friday. Wale was on top for much of the fight with two judges giving him the win outright with scorecards of 99-91, 97-93 and one judge had it level. An exciting watch, neither man took a backward step and fought

on the inside but is was always Wale getting the better of the exchances against the southpaw who arrived in South Yorkshire with a formidable winning record of 28 wins from 29 fights. Wale also landed heavily to the body and to the head with left hooks but Williams soaked up the pressure. Wale took Williams’ IBO international title with the victory, his 30th since turning pro way back in 2006, and can now look forward to a homecoming fight at the Metrodome on February 21.

On the move with our helpful guide

13

Moving home can be a hectic business. In the run up to the big day, it is all too easy to forget something vital. To help you avoid some of the major pitfalls, we offer the following checklist: WITH 4 WEEKS TO GO:

WITH 1 WEEK TO GO:





    

Arrange to take over gas and electricity at your new address, and make sure that all appliances will be properly fitted. Notify BT and ask them to make the necessary arrangements for a final account at your present address, and for taking over or installing telephone facilities. Arrange for change of address cards to be printed. Get estimates from removal companies, checking that comprehensive insurance cover is available against damage or loss, is there a packing and unpacking service? Confirm the date of your move. Check on your home contents insurance policies to ensure that you are covered for the move, and covered at your new address. Make arrangements for your gas and electricity meters (plus water meters where relevant) to be read and all your appliances to be disconnected on the day of your move.

WITH 2 WEEKS TO GO:



 

Begin to throw out unwanted items from attics, wardrobes. What you really don’t want you may as well dump now, send to charity, or sell through the Classified pages of the Chronicle. It’s a great time for a good sort out! Confirm all arrangements, times etc. for meter readings, disconnections and reconnections, with authorities and with your buyer and seller. Make sure you have a good stock of packing materials, including sturdy boxes and plenty of string and sticky tape.

Arrange and pay for automatic re-direction of your mail by the Post Office.



Cover carpets which are being left behind, so as to minimise damage during furniture removal. Check through previous lists to make sure nothing has been overlooked, then enjoy a worry-free early night! Complete your packing except for those items you are likely to need overnight, and prepare a picnic for moving day. Have a large enough cash ‘float’ available to deal with unexpected expenses, and make sure you have collected documents and valuables together in a safe place.

Dismantle any light fittings, etc. not included in sale. Turn off electric appliances. Disconnect cooker.
