Row over safety barrier plea
bawtry Town Council has rebuffed a request from their local MP to move a barrier at the entrance to a play area.
Caroline Flint, who represents Don Valley, wrote to councillors advising them that a resident wanted removal or widening of barriers at Wharf Street playground.
But the council has responded by pointing out the barriers were in the present position after advice from Doncaster Council and in the interests of public safety to prevent cars and motorbikes getting on to the play area.
