BARNSLEY’S only Conservative MP Miriam Cates has said she will work with residents of Crane Moor to improve mobile signal in the area.

Crane Moor, which is on the edge of Thurgoland, has been blighted with a lack of signal due to its remoteness for a number of years.

However, Penistone and Stocksbridge MP Mrs Cates has vowed to support the residents in any way she can.

She said: “I know that mobile signal is an issue for many households, and so I’ll be writing to providers to see how provision can be improved for people in the village.

“It’s great to see Superfast South Yorkshire have been working in the area to deliver better broadband, keeping the community of Crane Moor connected.

“I’ll be in touch with residents on my progress and look forward to speaking to more people across our area about the issues that matter to them.”
