A BARNSLEY man found dead in his home is believed to have been poisoned by carbon monoxide fumes from a disposable barbecue.

Police and fire crews broke into the terraced house on Tune Street on Sunday at around 6.30pm after concerns were raised by relatives.


Inside they found the body of Stephen Waddington, 53. Close by they discovered the remains of a burnt out disposable barbecue.
