YOUNGSTERS identified as being responsible for antisocial behaviour in Darton have been referred Barnsley’s Youth Offending Team (YOT).

It follows work carried out by both Barnsley Council and South Yorkshire Police, focusing on areas such as Dearne Street and Bridge Street which have both been hit by a rise in related complaints.

Tasking officer Cath Fairweather said: “We’ve intervened following residents’ complaints and when there’s been a full admission of guilt, the appropriate outcome was to refer them to the team’s officers who will decide the best way forward.”
