Concerns over potential traffic 'chaos' in Goldthorpe

Goldthorpe residents are angry over the decision to close a bridge to drivers.

Part of Straight Lane - which goes over the old railway bridge - will shut on Sunday.

People told us traffic will be chaos in the area.

Barnsley Council say the closure is to protect the weak bridge structure - after an assessment by Network Rail concluded the bridge is weak and not capable of carrying vehicles over 7.5 tonnes.
