POLICE were called to a popular park after reports of parties led to the discovery of bags of rubbish, including nitrous oxide canisters.
The Barnsley Central team were called to Dearne Valley Park, Pontefract Road, on Monday and found bags of rubbish that had been dumped, possibly after a party had taken place.
A spokesperson for the team said: “We are regularly patrolling the area and were sad to see the amount of rubbish left in the area, when we were down there today which included broken glass, plastic and nitrous oxide canisters.
“Please respect our parks, and take your rubbish with you when you leave.”
