Jet 2

I've been in Doncaster to film a story about a family who were made to pay extra by Jet 2 for their package holiday when they let the company know one of their family members wouldn't be going because he'd died. Andrew Genery's upset was compounded by messages Jet 2 sent asking whether his dead father had enjoyed his holiday.

Steelkings Para Ice Hockey

I've been down to Ice Sheffield to film with Sheffield Steel Kings, the para-ice hockey club. They've been named as the UK's favourite lottery funded sports project. The club gives people with lower body disabilities the opportunity to play the fast paced-sport. They were visited by Paralympics star Jonnie Peacock. I've been wanting to film with the club for a long time and this was a good opportunity.

The challenge of this shoot was not just the ice but working around the film crew from the BBC TV lottery programme who were also there. I'd have loved to have had a go and done a piece-to-camera playing para ice hockey but it wasn't possible with a film crew shooting on the ice.
