Gordon Banks

This week I reported on the death one of the greatest sportsmen Yorkshire has ever produced. Gordon Banks, the England goalkeeper who won the 1966 World Cup passed away at the age of 81.
He was born in Sheffield and started his footballing career at Chesterfield. There was so much good archive of his life so I had to keep only the very best bits in my report.

This Is Me

I've been filming a story on BBC Radio Sheffield's 'This Is Me' competition offering a year's contract working for them. They've whittled it down to the final 3...



All three of them were really impressive and I'm sure would have done a good job. The winner was Sile Sibanda and I look forward to working with her at BBC Sheffield.

Sheffield Hatters

I've been filming with the most successful women's basketball team in the country, the Sheffield Hatters. They were in the final of the WBBL Cup last Sunday and won it...just! I filmed this feature about them before the match. The Hatters is a great club that deserves recognition, not least because of all the work they do getting children in Sheffield playing basketball.

Incinerator

I've been filming a story at Sheffield's incinerator and it's absolutely fascinating to see inside. This all came about because researchers at Sheffield Hallam University have found that in the last sixty years we've lost touch with the processes of energy production as we've transitioned from open fires for heating are homes to gas central heating. They want to reconnect people with energy so they've taking members of the public on tours around Sheffield's incinerator.

Sepsis Inquest

I've been covering a very sad story about the sudden death of a trainee paramedic from Barnsley. The inquest I reported on heard that Jessica Holbrook died of sepsis and would "probably" have survived if she had been given antibiotics sooner. Jessica died just five days after complaining she had a cold. It emerged at the inquest that she was not given antibiotics on her first visit to the doctors.

Page Hall Rats

I've been filming a story in an area of Sheffield that's got an infestation of rats. Residents in Page Hall are understandably worried about the impact this could have on their health. Overcrowded housing in the area coupled with fly-tipping and littering are thought to be the cause of the problem. The council says it is taking action.
