YouTube user Simone Lymbery has posted footage of the Lakeside path on the video sharing website - and laid down the challenge to the council to tackle the problem which she says has been ignored for months.

The clip, entitled "What are you gonna do about it Doncaster metropolitan borough council?" shows mobile phone footage of a walk along the path which is crowded by plants and bushes.

In a post beneath the clip, she writes: "This path has been over grown for months yet the Doncaster metropolitan borough have done nothing about it.

"It's a safety hazard and it's causing bees to swarm around the overgrown plants.

"I ask a question: Doncaster Metropolitan borough council what are you going to do about it? This is what happens when the government of the UK takes money from the councils and gives it to there rich mates we are not all in this together!"
