To report a non-emergency incident you are supposed to call 101 but you might wait a long time for it to be answered, if at all. It has been useless for years. Email is a good way to contact the Police, as you can collect your thoughts together and put the relevent information, photos, etc. into one document, then CC it to other important parties, to endorse that you had sent it. .

Royal Mail Problems
If your mail habitually goes to the wrong address or you often receive someone else's mail, contact Royal Mail Customer Services on 03457 777 888 or 0345 774 0740, for it to be officially logged.

Report a Pothole
For drivers in the Barnsley Borough, if you encounter a hole in the road, there's a form to fill in:
Pothole Form (Pdf on the BMBC website) or try this one: Report a Pothole.

If you have an emergency need to use one, call 999 for the access code. See First Responders (on Facebook).

Barnsley Council's Road Gritting
