A number of Doncaster food banks are due to close.

The Mexborough outlet will close on May 1, while others in Intake and Balby Bridge could also shut by that date if emergency additional funding cannot be found.

Another food bank was also closed in Maltby earlier this month and another in the town is also at risk of calling it quits.

Operators Food AWARE said they have not been offered enough funding support from local councils to continue.
