Scott Westgarth

I've been to film a follow-up story on the Sheffield boxer who died in hospital after a light-heavyweight fight in February. Scott Westgarth has helped save the lives of five people because he was on the donor register. His family and friends gathered to celebrate Scott's life close to his boxing gym in Hillsborough.

Oliver Rowland F1

I've been down to Silverstone to film a story on a racing driver from Yorkshire who's on the verge of competing at the very highest level of motorsport. Oliver Rowland has been made the Official Young Driver for Formula 1 team Williams after earning his stripes in Formula 2. The twenty-five-year-old is hoping to make his F1 Grand Prix debut next season.

Mountain Bike Film

I've been to film a story about a movie that's been shot in Sheffield on the site of the former ski village which burned down six years ago. The feature film is called 'Gamble' and showcases the talent of some of the best downhill mountain bikers in the world. I really enjoyed filming at Parkwood Springs with Joe, the filmmaker, and legendary Sheffield rider Steve Peat.
