Rotherham taxpayers have been thanked for paying their council tax bills on time, generating an extra £6 million for frontline services.

Rotherham Council collected £93.9 million in council tax in the last financial year, which was a collection rate of 97.1 per cent.

This compares with £88.7 million collected the previous year.

Deputy council leader Coun Jahangir Akhtar said: “Rotherham people have come up trumps, with the majority paying their bills on time. Rotherham is a proud town with proud people.”
