A SHOP at the centre of a row about 'legal highs' in Barnsley is moving out of the Arcade on Friday.

Barnsley Central MP Dan Jarvis said he welcomed the news that the Smokey Sam’s shop is leaving.

Dan said: “This shop has been a blight on the Arcade and a blight on our town. I am in regular contact with business owners there and we have frequently seen people fitting, vomiting and collapsing in the vicinity of this shop.

"We are all convinced that it was because of the sale of these substances. It attracted drug users, encouraged anti-social behaviour, put off potential customers and left local businesspeople scared to leave their shops.“
