A DISUSED garage in Grimethorpe has become a tipping hotspot.

Residents who live around the site on Windmill Avenue have begged Barnsley Council to take action as it has become a dumping ground.

A council spokesman said the land was sold at auction in February.

“Our Regulatory Services team is aware of issues in this area and will bring it to the attention of the current land owner. 

“Where we are able to act and have strong evidence we will seek to prosecute and a number of prosecutions are pending from around the wider area.”
