Same web property ID is tracked twice (ga and gtm)

Bounce rate of the website http://www.heartwoodgroup.co.uk is zero and this is the reason I think http://prntscr.com/fbxacr .

 

Custom dimensions are all tracked fine but I'm not sure why the pageview is sent twice (at least I think that's why the bounce rate is zero).

 

Thanks for any help in advance.

You use both GTM (which can fire GA tracking code) and in-page GA code (see attached)Screenshot 2017-05-25 13.49.50.png

 

Just use the one in GTM and remove the GA page code.

 

Take a quick look at the tracking calls made by GA:

Thanks for the reply.

 

I just have a question about the custom dimensions. How will they be sent then?

Should I send them with data layer of GTM?
