A SECRET camera in Barnsley town centre has helped to tackle fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour for the last six months.

The camera, which is being used in a partnership between Barnsley Council’s community safety and town centre services teams, has had a successful trial.

This has resulted in the successful identification of fly-tippers and the case is currently in the process of prosecution.

Cameras have also recently captured criminal damage offences, drug-related offences and anti-social behaviour within the central ward.
