Tommy Frank

I've really enjoyed filming a story with boxer Tommy Frank from Sheffield who's hoping to inspire others by his success in the ring. The Super flyweight was born with a hole in his heart but that hasn't stopped him becoming a professional boxer. Tommy is an ambassador for Yorkshire-based national charity Heart Research UK and wants others to set themselves ambitious targets like he has. I filmed with him at his gym and with his lovely parents who had to go through the trauma of seeing their son have to go through open-heart surgery as a child.

UCI Road World Championships

It's seven months until the UCI Road World Championships come to Yorkshire. The county will be showcased to the world as the global TV audience is expected to be around 300 million viewers. Members of the organising committee from last year's race in Austria have been here to give their advice on how to host a successful race.

Lorry Crash

This week I reported at Sheffield Crown Court where three men were found guilty of causing the death of a woman who was hit by a stolen lorry near Barnsley, moments before it ploughed into the side of a house. Jacqueline Wileman was out walking when she was run over by the vehicle in Brierley in September last year. The lorry was travelling at double the speed limit.
