POLICE officers have contacted South Yorkshire Travel after a bus stop was vandalised once again.

The stop, based on Houghton Road in Thurnscoe, has been a long-standing hotspot for vandalism in the area.

A spokesperson for Barnsley South Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We are sad to see the Houghton Road bus shelter in this state again.

“We are in talks with South Yorkshire Travel to see if this shelter can be removed as this was an issue raised at our PACT meeting.”
