Almost £3m is to be spent on trying to keep youngsters away from criminal gangs in Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham .
The project is being launched with a £703,000 grant secured from the government by the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings.
Each of the three local councils are matching that figure from their own existing resources, to create a scheme designed to step in and help children and young people at risk of getting drawn into criminal gangs.
Funding will last until March 2020, according to a report about the project.
Rotherham complete club-record signing
Rotherham United have broken their transfer record to sign striker Freddie Ladapo.
The 26-year-old forward arrives at the New York Stadium from Plymouth Argyle for an undisclosed-fee.
Ladapo scored 18 goals for the Pilgrims last season as they were relegated from League One last season.
It is understood Rotherham have paid £500,000 for the former Crystal Palace player.
A bus strike which was due to take place in South Yorkshire on Saturday will not now take place as a mark of respect for Armed Forces Day, according to the union representing some workers.
Unite members who are employed by First South Yorkshire previously voted to strike in a dispute over pay.
While Saturday's planned strike is suspended, a 24-hour strike is still due to take place on Monday 1 July, according to Unite.
Talks about pay are ongoing between the company and the union, with about 900 bus drivers set to strike, a Unite spokesperson added.
We recognised that a strike on Saturday would cause severe inconvenience to veterans wishing to attend events across South Yorkshire. Our dispute is with First South Yorkshire and not with current and past members of the armed forces who have bravely served their country."
Sir Gary Verity resignation: Investigation updates due
Updates on two investigations into Welcome to Yorkshire are due to be given to a meeting of the tourism organisation's board later.
Police officers in Maltby are trying to track down potential witnesses to a fatal crash which happened earlier this month.
Lindsey Burton (pictured), 34, died in hospital the day after the car she was driving was involved in a crash with a Scania LGV and a silver Citroen Picasso.
The incident happened on the A631 Tickhill Road at about 15:40 on Wednesday 12 June.
Police have now released this image as they continue to search for witnesses:
It's hoped the driver of the green Vauxhall Corsa (pictured) might have seen the crash and could help officers with their investigation.
The car is believed to be a 2015 or newer Corsa which has been modified with a spoiler.
Yorkshire MEP hits out at Rees-Mogg over EU iPad tweets
A Yorkshire MEP has hit out at a newly-elected MEP after she described a free iPad she was given as part of her new role as an example of "the corrupt gravy train" of the EU.
Annunziata Rees-Mogg, a Brexit MEP for the East Midlands and sister of Conservative MP Jacob, posted on Twitter about the "shiny new iPad I was given by the European Parliament for no very obvious reason".
Responding, Labour MEP Richard Corbett said she wanted to "rubbish everything about the EU, even when you know the truth.
"The Parliament gives you an iPad configured to parliamentary work, so you don’t need so many paper documents, saving money and trees, and can work more effectively," he added.
Transport investment needed as northern services decline
Northern mayors and council leaders want more investment in transport after figures showed train services have got worse, despite the push of a Northern Powerhouse.
Cities like Leeds, Sheffield and Hull were encouraged to work together both in rivalling London and the South East and to "take on the world", with more jobs and opportunities.
But five years on, doubt has been cast on just how successful the project has been, with transport being one key area that officials want to improve.
The number of cancelled and significantly late trains on TransPennine Express and Northern franchises more than doubled from 20,000 in 2014-15 to 47,000 in 2018-19. It meant that almost one in every 20 services was either cancelled or more than 30 minutes late arriving at its destination.
Mayor of the Sheffield City Region Dan Jarvis, said the government should see the north as "an asset, not a liability" and said Westminster had "let the north down".
Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said: "The northern authorities are working much more closely together and that's a real benefit.
"The real difficulty we have is that (transport) schemes are delayed and there's a real lack of commitment to rebalancing the economy."
