Barnsley Neonatal Unit

I had the great pleasure of reporting on the opening of the new neonatal unit at Barnsley Hospital - a really heart-warming story. A million pounds has been raised to fund the project, including a big donation from a very well known Yorkshireman.

More than nine and a half thousand fans turned out at the New York Stadium in Rotherham to watch England Women play Sweden. The Lionesses went down two-nil but the England manager Phil Neville has said they'll be back to play in Yorkshire soon. I was really impressed by how family-friendly the experience was - very different from some of the matches I go to normally.

Anti-Knife Crime Club Night

Eight men have been stabbed to death in Sheffield so far this year. To try to discourage young people from carrying knives, an anti-knife crime club night has been taking place. It brought different communities together and challenged the stereotype that urban music like Grime is part of the problem. I thoroughly enjoyed filming this story and appreciated the honesty of the people I interviewed.
