Possibly a local thing or I don't get what you're trying to say.
I was going to say that it might be a local thing - but "East Yorkshire" (you mean what most people call Humberside and what I was brought up to call the East Riding of Yorkshire, regardless) ain't that far away from Barnsley. So that theory's blown out of the water.
