BARNSLEY Council has issued an apology after a video went viral of bin men throwing white paper recycling bags on cars - and a blue bin on the floor.

The video - captured by CCTV outside of Cheryl Parker's home - was featured on regional news programme Calendar earlier today.

Cheryl said: "The grey bin men in Old Town are fabulous, it's only the recycling men that are the problem."

The council has since issued an apology over the incident.

It said in a statement: "We are aware of a video our waste collection service being shared on social media.

"Barnsley Council aims to deliver a consistently high standard of service and this clearly falls short. This behaviour is totally unacceptable and a full investiigation will be carried out.

"We thank the resident for getting in touch and apologise for the level of service she received and any distress caused."
