Bolton Upon Dearne Residents Swarmed With Flies

With summer approaching, Bolton On Dearne residents are arming themselves with fly swatters and insect spray.

They have told us there has been an increase in the pests - which are believed to be coming from the nearby waste recycling centre at Manvers.

The Environment Agency's been investigating the issue this week - as it got temporarily worse during maintainence work.

But, the owner of the nearby Corner Cafe says it's a year round problem, which needs tackling before it gets warmer.

Renewi - which runs the site - says it is already aware of concerns and has taken immediate steps to minimise flies.
