A derelict housing estate which has become a magnet for flytippers has finally been cleaned up following pressure from councillors and residents.

Locals claim the Windhill estate in Mexborough had been left to rot since more than 100 homes were cleared from the site several years ago.

New homes were due to be built there as part of the Housing Market Renewal Pathfinder Programme but the scheme was abandoned due to Government funding cuts in March 2011.
