Bike Hit and Run

I've been filming with a man who was knocked off his bike by a hit-and-run driver in South Yorkshire. Jim Ward says some motorists see cyclists as "fair game". He was out riding with his brother when they were verbally abused and then he was driven into. Jim suffered a broken collar bone, a double break in his hand and cracked ribs as well as mental scars.

Demolition

Residents living next to a University of Sheffield building site say their lives have been made intolerable by the constant noise. The huge social sciences building was not far from being completed when it was found that part of the building started to sink and it was established the foundations were not deep enough. It’s now having to be demolished and rebuilt which means even more disruption for residents.
