Death crash lorry driver goes to jail A LORRY driver who caused the death of a motorist after stopping on an unlit stretch of dual carriageway has been jailed for three years. Marcel Balan, 57, came to a halt on the A19 near Sunderland in March last year having missed his turn off, and attempted to reverse. It resulted in the death of 24-year-old John Robinson, who was travelling behind in his Ford Fusion, which collided into the back of the stationary HGV. Balan, of Cope Street, Barnsley, was subsequently charged following Mr Robinson’s death, but denied causing death by dangerous driving. Last month a jury found him guilty of the offence after an eight-day trial at Newcastle Crown Court and he was sentenced last week. Sergeant Steve Armstrong, of Northumbria Police, said: “While no ruling can ever take away the family’s anguish, I hope the sentence can give them some kind of

justice which allows them to continue with the next stage of their grieving process. “Balan’s actions that night were irresponsible and incredibly dangerous. “He has caused a huge amount of pain to so many people as a result of his behaviour behind the wheel.” After travelling past the turn-off for the A1231 Wessington Way, Balan made the decision to stop his lorry in the inside lane of the carriageway. Seconds later, Mr Robinson’s car collided with the back of the lorry – causing fatal injuries – and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Upon arrest, Balan claimed he had come to a ‘gradual stop’ on the carriageway because he had ‘heard a noise in his lorry and feared his cargo had come loose’. This was contradicted by the data from his vehicle’s tachograph and dash-cam footage, and there was no evidence of his load being insecure.

Balan had clocked up ‘millions of miles’ on the roads during his 36-year career without any incident, the court was told at the sentencing. Sgt Armstrong added: “The laws of the road are not optional and they are not negotiable. “They’re there to keep people safe. “By ignoring them, Balan directly put the lives of Mr Robinson and other road users in danger.” In a statement, Mr Robinson’s family said: “We are very grateful for all the professional, painstaking work that both Northumbria Police and the Crown Prosecution Service have carried out to see how this dreadful incident happened. “No matter the outcome of this trial, it will not change the fact that we have lost our lovely John, and this will affect us for the rest of our lives.” Balan will also be banned from driving for two-and-a-half years upon his release.

Picture: Blueline n WALK AND TALK: A SPONSORED walk from Wombwell Main Club to Oakwell helped raise awareness of men’s mental health, and spread the message that it’s okay to speak about the subject. The #It’sOkToTalkWalk was organised by Warren Bird, 33. After experiencing mental health problems, he created the hashtag #It’sOkToTalk to help raise awareness of mental health issues and to encourage others, mostly men, to speak up if they are suffering. Last year, Warren created cricket bat stickers bearing the hashtag which helped to raise more than £700 for charity. This year, he decided to fundraise by walking from Wombwell Main to Oakwell on a Barnsley FC match day. Warren, alongside 37 others, took a 22-mie route which called at seven sports clubs along the way.

The walk was to raise money for Barnsley Samaritans and local mental health charity Project 14. “It was challenging and rewarding at the same time,” said Warren. “The last few miles were tough but we all banded together and we had some really good camaraderie and a great atmosphere so we all helped each other to keep going.” Former Barnsley player Jon Parkin also took part in the walk and said that it has opened his eyes to how common mental health problems among men are. “I had no idea how common it was,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor. This can affect anyone.” Warren estimates that the challenge has helped to raise approximately £3,000 which will be split equally between the two charities.

Latest flood leaves football club fighting for survival THE chairman of a football club which has been flooded for the second time in three months has warned that without major help and work, the club may not be able to survive. Worsbrough Bridge Athletic, which is based in Park Road, ended up waterlogged after the River Dove broke its banks during Storm Ciara. The club, which fields its first team in the Northern Counties East League and has a string of other sides, posted photos on social media that showed nearly half of the pitch under water. And with the club also flooding in November and having just recovered, it means that all games are potentially cancelled for the next six to eight weeks. Chairman Mark Booth said the damage will lead to a ‘massive financial loss’ and is asking for the community to ‘come together’ to help the club in the short term. “It’s really difficult for us at the moment,” said Mark. “The issue is if we don’t play football matches, we don’t make money, and if we don’t make money, we can’t pay the rent and we lose the club.

“It took us four weeks to dry out last year and this year, at this time of season, we can’t afford to wait six to eight weeks for the pitch to dry out properly.” In the short term, the club is hoping to dry out the pitch as soon as possible so it doesn’t lose revenue, but in the long run, Mark said there needs to be work on the river banks. “What’s happening is the banks are eroding every time it floods, so it means it’s flooding quicker and it’s a big issue,” he added. “We’ve increased our teams from four to nine now and we have more junior clubs. “The flooding means it’s challenging to grow as a football club. “The problem with the erosion means that someone needs to come in and assess the damage and I’m sure that will be a certain amount of work and it will cost a fair bit, which we can’t afford.” It’s believed that the damage has lost the club more than £5,000 through game revenue and winter training. “It’s a massive heartbreak for the volunteers and it’s devastating for the football club,” said Mark.

CONCERNED: Mark Booth “We need our local partners to support us, however they can do. “The club is going to be turning 100 years old in 2023 and we want to make it. “We don’t want to be gone by then. We need help.” Anyone who wants to get in touch with the club to offer help, call Mark on 07931 335524. Meanwhile, Athersley Rec FC, on Ollerton Road, was affected by the winds caused by Storm Ciara. Club manager Pete Goodlad was left shocked to see

hundreds of pounds of damage to the panels on the stands at the Sheerien Park ground. He said: “About 20 advertising panels were blown down on the inside of the ground and three gates were smashed to pieces. “It happened because of the strong wind. It was awful to see the damage made to the pitch when I walked in. “Luckily for us, we didn’t have any games on our main pitch at the weekend, so it’s not interfering with any matters of health and safety. “But it needs fixing sooner rather than later.” Pete has been left to mend the damage himself, by funding and installing new panels and fences. “All of the repairs will cost around £600 out of my own pocket which could have gone towards the club,” he said. “It’s so disheartening when you get setbacks like these.” “We need to get everything fixed by this weekend to make sure that people can play on the pitch safely and we can still function. “If anybody has time to help with any repairs, or support us in any way, please come in and give us a hand.”

WATERY WOE: One of the borough’s flooded roads.

Concerned resident breaks wrist while checking water level WORRIED residents in Wombwell had a lucky escape from a second flooding disaster, with one woman even breaking her wrist when measuring the river level. Storm Ciara caused havoc across the borough with fallen trees, flooding and road closures, leaving many people who were affected by the November floods panicking that their homes were about to be waterlogged. Wombwell, in particular, was hit hard last year, with many residents on Station Road having to move out or be housed elsewhere because their houses were so badly damaged. One of these residents was Sue Bradshaw, of Stonyford Road, who is the chair of the Low Valley Flood Defence Committee. Sue’s home was badly affected last year and she said she is ‘fed up’ of the panic every time the prospect of a storm or extreme weather is announced. Storm Ciara didn’t affect her house, but did flood her garden. “It’s awful and we’re living in panic,” said Sue, who has lived in her house on Stonyford Road for nearly 35 years. “This time I broke a wrist when I was checking the level of the river. I just slipped, so that hasn’t been fun. “We just want to get something done to prevent this from happening again. The river didn’t burst its banks this time but it wasn’t far off. “We’re always worrying about what will happen in this weather.” Sue, who picked up the role of chair for the flood defence committee after her husband Pete died in 2013, said the first time the property was waterlogged was in the 2007 floods, and the garden and up to her back door has been flooded four times since. “We had to move out for a year after the 2007 floods,” said Sue, 60. “I don’t want that to happen again. I am a childminder by trade and my business is at home so when it flooded last year I lost two weeks of work. I couldn’t claim that back. “This is just a nightmare.” Sue has held a meeting in response to plans for 111 houses on land bordered by Station Road on its southern edge, Stonyford Road on its east and the River Dove and Bulling Dike on its north and west respectively. She said she’s been told ‘the new houses will be protected’ from floods, but other residents are concerned about this. Wayne Jones, whose home is on Station Lane, is currently living at his in-laws with his wife because their house was so badly damaged in November. He is now having to wait while new flooring is put down and other parts of the property are repaired. “We were lucky to not have the property affected this time,” said Wayne.

Alcohol issues a worry for medics

AT THE CONTROLS: Barnsley East MP Stephanie Peacock explores the cockpit of a Vulcan bomber.

A century of Royal Air Force bravery A BARNSLEY MP visited the Royal Air Force Museum as part of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme. Stephanie Peacock, who represents Barnsley East, was told about how the RAF keeps the country safe and was given the chance to explore the cockpit of a Vulcan bomber. The museum offers visitors a chance to learn about the first 100 years of the RAF and

discover the stories of bravery of those that served. She said: “It was great to learn about how the RAF has defended the skies of Britain over the last 100 years. “I’m sure young people and children will continue to enjoy the programme of events and exhibitions, which invite visitors to imagine the RAF’s future contributions to technology and our country’s defence.”

ALCOHOL-related admissions are ‘crippling’ Barnsley Hospital at a time when treatment services in the town have endured multi-million pound cuts, a shock new study has revealed. According to experts at UK Addiction Treatment, there’s been a 34 per cent rise in Barnsley since 2012/13, with 7,430 people admitted to hospital in the town in 2018/19. This cost the NHS more than £10m to deal with and the increase means Barnsley is now the second-worst in the Yorkshire and Humber region, with only York recording a higher rise. UKAT says councils have been ‘lacklustre’ in their response to year-on-year hikes, which comes at a time when there’s been a 50 per cent closure rate of rehabilitation facilities across the region. Conditions for admission due to alcohol include cardiovascular disease, alcohol poisoning and liver disease. Nuno Albuquerque, from UKAT, said: “The analysis shows a huge rise in hospital admissions for Barnsley. “Alcohol is a ticking time bomb which is about to explode. NHS hospitals in particular across Yorkshire are crippling under pressures directly attributable

to the misuse of alcohol, a drug that is so socially accepted yet so incredibly dangerous. “People here are seemingly struggling with their alcohol consumption, drinking so much that it is leading to hospitalisation and the diagnosis of further, debilitating conditions, yet the government continues to have their heads buried in the sand. “It is a huge problem and one that needs immediately addressed.” The population across Barnsley has increased by more than 7,000 since 2012/13, yet the drop-off in spending on alcohol treatment equates to almost £2.2m, according to UKAT. There are now more than 3,500 residents in the town who rely on alcohol, up by about 100 since 2010. Barnsley Council has an ‘alcohol plan’ in place, with seven priorities and a number of outcomes it wants to achieve, including a reduction in the number of people diagnosed with alcohol-related liver disease, hospital admissions, crime and disorder and increased awareness and understanding of alcohol-related harm across the borough. Coun Jim Andrews, cabinet spokesperson for public health,

said: “The local alcohol health needs assessment identified that one in four residents drink more than the recommended levels and GP records show that one in seven residents are drinking at ‘increasing risk’ levels. “There are also a high number of alcohol-related hospital admissions in Barnsley. “The alcohol plan aims to create a sensible drinking culture across the borough to ensure that everyone who chooses to drink alcohol does so sensibly.” Dr Andy Snell, from Barnsley Hospital, said that the rise was a ‘major concern’. “Regularly drinking more than 14 units of alcohol a week can harm our health and increases the risk of us developing diseases,” he added. “That’s the equivalent to about six pints of beer or six large glasses of wine. “We know too many people drink too much alcohol in Barnsley and we are working with the local authority and others to address this.” n The council’s commissioned alcohol misuse service is called Recovery Steps, delivered by Humankind, and they can be contacted for support on 779066, 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Singer Shane’s crucial meeting

HOPEFUL: Shane Morrall.

A SINGER-SONGWRITER could be hitting the charts after winning a meeting with a music consultant. Shane Morrall, 23, made it to the final of Open Mic UK, a competition which aims to find the best unsigned singer-songwriters in the country. He performed his own song Say My Name to the crowd at the O2 arena in London last month after wowing the judges in the regional heats held at Dewsbury. Although Shane didn’t win the competition, he was invited to a meeting with music consultant Chris Grayston in London. Chris is one of the directors of the competition and has worked with artists such as Tinchy Stryder, The Hoosiers and Nathan Sykes before he joined the boy band The Wanted. “The whole competition was amazing,” said Shane, of Sunnybank Drive, Cudworth. “It was the biggest crowd I had to played to in my life and it really reignited my love for gigging. “Having the chance to meet with Chris was the reason I entered the competition so I am ecstatic that I won the opportunity to hopefully get my music out there.” If the meeting is successful, Shane could be signed to a record label and have the chance to produce an album.

Putting a stop to school speeding A MUM-of-four has gathered around 1,000 signatures to try and prevent ‘a fatal accident outside a school’ in Worsbrough Dale. Lisa Pearson, of Wellington Crescent, said that speeding has been a problem on her road and Underwood Avenue, where Worsbrough Bank End Primary School is. The mum, who has two children aged six and nine who go to the school, said she is ‘always concerned’ about children’s safety in the area and thinks speedbumps would help to prevent accidents. “I have lived here for tenand-a-half years now and this problem has always been here,” she said. “There are speedbumps on most of the other roads but there aren’t any on Wellington or Underwood and there should be. “The council have only just painted lines on the junctions so cars will actually stop at the crossroads.” The 41-year-old also believes the issue of

speeding is ‘getting worse’ and there is more chance of an accident because of restricted parking. “The roads are only little so there is restricted parking as people are obviously parking outside their houses. But around school time it’s hard for children to even cross the roads as they can’t really see the road properly because of the parked cars.” Lisa set up a petition to get speed bumps installed on both Wellington Crescent and Underwood Avenue and has received more than 900 signatures. She said she received help and support from the community and staff at Bank End Primary. “It was a couple of months ago that I set up this petition,” said Lisa. “I’ve had lots of people sign it, including people who have children at the school and teachers at the school. The school also helped me, which was great. “I take my children to and from school even though

I live nearby and I don’t allow them to play out just in case something happens.” The petition has now been passed to Coun Jake Lodge, who has presented the it to the council. He said awareness of things like this need to be raised, as well as raising awareness of ‘problem roads’ in Worsbrough, which he says are a big issue for the ward. “I am extremely concerned about the state of roads across Worsbrough, where pot holes are a regular occurrence and the road network across the ward is a patchwork of tarmac and other materials, which have been used to cover the chronic under funding in roads across Worsbrough,” he said. “In the upcoming budget, I would like to see the council commit to investing in to roads across my ward. “We also need to see our roads become safer, that’s why I’m supporting local residents in getting speed bumps on Wellington Crescent.” WORRIED: Lisa Pearson wants speedbumps.

Tournament keeps students on the ball STUDENTS at Barnsley College have organised and officiated a national tournament in Boccia – a sport enjoyed by people with disabilities. Boccia is a precision ball sport played indoors with soft leather balls which tests muscle control and accuracy. The Disability Sport Yorkshire national under 19 Boccia tournament provided students with the opportunity to work with young disabled people, plus invaluable handson experience of being involved in a sporting event. Students worked on the event as part of their course. Rio Mellor, 17, of West Street, Worsbrough Dale, said: “Being involved with the tournament has given us the opportunity to learn the rules of a sport which is new to us and then take on

Cup mission

the challenge of organising the tournament. “We were briefed on the rules by Boccia England beforehand and given responsibility for planning the tournament and undertaking refereeing duties. “It has also been great to have experience of being involved

with disability sport.” Amanda Sowerby, physical activity and sport co-ordinator at the college, added: “Disability Sport Yorkshire have been organising regional competitions in partnership with Boccia England for several years now, utilising our

excellent facilities here at Barnsley College. “The students have been enthusiastic, helpful and willing to learn. “This is the main reason Disability Sport Yorkshire have continued to hold the event here at the college.”

Year-long bid A GROUP of people who are keeping busy well into their retirement have donated £250 to Yorkshire Air Ambulance as their chosen charity for the year. Barnsley Retirement Group meets at St Paul’s Church Hall, on Greenfoot Lane, every month. Dozens of local retirees gather to socialise over a cuppa and plan fundraising activities. The group, formerly Barnsley NHS Fellowship, has been meeting for around 20 years and chooses a charity to champion every year. This time it’s the turn of Yorkshire Air Ambulance, with representatives invited to attend a meeting and give a talk on the charity’s work. John Rooke, 57, said: “It’s such a good service and it’s nice to be able to help and keep it going if you can. We’re always active in raising money for different causes. “The air ambulance does excellent work in helping people in times of illness, major accidents and trauma. It’s very important work that they can’t always do on their own.” The group gave a donation of £250 to the charity, marking the start of a relationship that will last for the rest of the year.

WAB competition...

Your big chance to see multitalented Clare and her band in action ONE of the brightest stars in the 1980’s new wave sky, Altered Images are best remembered for their chart-topping single Happy Birthday. Their bubbly lead singer Clare Grogan originally shot to

fame in the film Gregory’s Girl, then appeared in Red Dwarf, EastEnders and Skins and was a presenter on music station VH1. Altered Images quickly had worldwide success, selling millions of records, which topped

the charts in several countries. They recorded three top ten albums, had six UK top 40 hits, were voted best new group at the NME awards and invited to play at the Royal Command Performance. Clare, now 57, has worked extensively in music, film, television, theatre and radio. Glasgow-born, she and her band worked closely with Scottish painter David Band, creating original art works that were released as special edition prints alongside the Altered Images singles. Clare recently received a special recognition award at the Scottish Music Awards and headlined a gala night at the Citizens Theatre in her home city. In January, she played to a sell-out crowd in Los Angeles at the Microsoft Theater. And she recently made her debut at the Royal Albert Hall, where she joined compatriots Texas on stage. Altered Images will be coming to the Holmfirth Picturedome on Friday, March 6. And we’re giving one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets. To be in with a chance of winning just answer this question: “When is Clare Grogan’s birthday?” Send your answer along with your name and contact number to competitions@wearebarnsley. com or alternatively post your entry to WAB Altered Images, 47 Church Street, Barnsley S70 2AS. The closing date is Friday, February 28. Good luck!

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, February 18, 2020 –

Sherlocks go all the way to USA

n MIDDLESBROUGH head to Barnsley on Saturday without a win in seven Championship outings. Jonathan Woodgate’s men are 18th in the table, nine points better off than the Reds. Boro slipped to a 1-0 home defeat by Luton Town on Saturday. Woodgate said: “I’m really disappointed about the players not finding more quality on the pitch. “It was a terrible game, not good enough from our point of view. We were really slow and didn’t move the ball quickly enough.”

LOCAL INDIE band The Sherlocks – who have supported Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and also the Libertines – will be heading to the States for a whirlwind tour, only five days after their UK dates end. The band have previously toured America, but drummer Brandon Crook says that they haven’t been ‘Stateside’ in almost two years and the band are keen to grow their fanbase there. The fourpiece from Bolton-upon-Dearne will promote their second album Under Your Sky and their new single One Day, which is taken from the album. “We will be playing in Austin, Texas, then go to LA, then back to Texas and finally on to New York,” said Brandon. “Last time we were out there for about five weeks but this time it will only be two weeks. “We really want to spread our name out there and build our fanbase. “Since we haven’t been out there in a while we don’t want people to forget us and our sound, so we jumped at the chance to go back again.” The visit takes place just five days after the group wrap up their UK tour, where the band will play at sold-out venues in Leeds and Sheffield. “It’s definitely going to be a busy year for us, after we get back from America we will jump straight into festival season, which is always a fun time of year. “We have been confirmed for Tramlines this year, which is really amazing, as we played in one of the smaller tents when we were just starting out and we had to push our amps across the road to get from gig to gig. I think our dream is to headline Tramlines as that would be the icing on the cake.” Despite their busy schedule, Brandon revealed that the band has already begun working on their third album. “We just want to keep things fresh and to keep producing music for as long as possible.” The single One Day is available on Spotify and Apple Music.

Reds gain morale-boosting victory

HEAD coach Gerhard Struber says Barnsley’s 3-0 win at Fulham can act as a sprinboard to Championship survival. Cauley Woodrow scored twice against his former club either side of Jacob Brown’s lob, as the Reds moved to within two wins of safety. It was a first victory in six league games and followed last Tuesday’s 1-0 home defeat by Birmingham City. “I hope it can give my boys the feeling that we have the chance to stay in the league,” said Struber, whose side are at home to Middlesbrough on Saturday. “The gap is six points. We believe in ourselves, we never give up.” Woodrow spent seven years at Fulham, from the age of 16, before signing for Barnsley in 2018.

IT’S THERE: Barnsley celebrate Jacob Brown’s goal.

On his first return to Craven Cottage, he gave Barnsley the lead from the penalty spot in the 24th minute after Brown was fouled by Fulham goalkeeper Marek Rodak. Brown doubled the lead early in the second half with a

smart lofted finish over the exposed Rodak. Fulham, who are challenging for the playoffs, lacked penetration and Woodrow showed his old team what they were missing with a clinical third goal late on. “We have the right

feeling, the right attitude,” added Struber. “In every second we had control, never gave the opponent space and time. It was a very clear victory.” Fulham head coach Scott Parker admitted: “I didn’t see that coming.”
