RESIDENTS living in an area of Barnsley claim it is being turned into a ghetto because private landlords are letting their properties on short term lets.

People living in Stocks Lane and the surrounding streets say there is an ongoing problem with fly-tipping, all night parties and anti social behaviour.

They say the problem is being caused by tenants moving in on a short term basis then dumping items of furniture they don't want when they move out on gardens and paths around the area.
