Sheffield Castle

I had a really enjoyable afternoon filming at the archaeological dig of Sheffield Castle. Its history is fascinating - Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned there for more than a decade. The challenge for me was to work quickly, to a tight deadline. I had to film the story and edit it within four hours for it to be broadcast on that evening's Look North programme.

Spice

I've been filming an exclusive story at one of the first spice walk-in-clinics in the UK which has opened in Sheffield. The drug leaves users in a comatose zombie like state and have become a familiar sight in the UK's towns and cities. I came across the story when I was filming a different story recently about the rise of begging in the city. I was alarmed by the number of people I saw high on spice.

Chaplain

I've been filming a story at hospitals in Sheffield where a chaplain there has been named as the 'most outstanding Muslim woman in South Yorkshire' in recognition of her work. Sabia Rehman won the top accolade at the Al Nisa Awards, which are a celebration of the contribution and achievements of Muslim women in South Yorkshire.
