FOUR people were given a fixed penalty notice in the town centre yesterday, November 5, for breaching coronavirus regulations.

The town centre neighbourhood team, alongside Safer Neighbourhood services with the council, patrolled the area to monitor lockdown guidelines.

At County Way, which has had multiple reports of antisocial behaviour in the past year, the officers found a number of vehicles gathered and issued £200 fixed penalty notices to four individuals.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Central Neighbourhood Team said: “Vehicles were found gathered on Upper County Way car park.

“We are very much aware of repeated reports of antisocial use at the location, so it is always on our patrol plan.

“Tonight, four individuals were issued with £200 Fixed Penalty Notices for beaching Covid-19 lockdown regulations at County Way.

“We will continue to patrol the area and take enforcement action where necessary, in relation to antisocial behaviour, traffic offences, and breaches of Covid-19 regulations.”
