Transfer Deadline Day in Studio

It was transfer deadline day this week and I reported from the studio on the key arrivals to our clubs in Yorkshire and the interviewed Leeds United commentator Adam Pope and Kaiser Chief Simon Rix off the back who were brilliant.

You'll notice at the start of my live report the autocue was not working - thankfully I had my script in my hand ready to refer to until it was back working! I find every time I do a live report I learn something new.

Will Vaulks

I had a really fulfilling experience highlighting an issue I'm passionate about. I interviewed Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Will Vaulks about mental health from the home changing room at Hillsborough stadium. Will's supporting the Baton of Hope roadshow after losing both his grandads to suicide.  The roadshow is being organised by former Look North presenter Mike McCarthy whose son Ross died after a ten year battle with depression. The Baton of Hope will be carried by families and friends bereaved by suicide in stages around the country. I'm passionate about opening up discussions on mental health and have written about my experience here.
