Paddle Board

I've been down to Sheffield and Tinsley canal to report on a new way of encouraging people to volunteer with clearing up rubbish. And I had a great time and learnt a new skill!

Grouse Shooting

The grouse shooting season is under way and I've been to Ilkely Moor to report on a demonstration calling on Bradford Council to stop licensing grouse shooting on the land. It's the last publicly owned place in the UK where it takes place.

Special Olympics

I've been to film a story about the Special Olympics which has been taking place in Sheffield this week. More than two thousand athletes who have learning disabilities have been taking part. Instead of trying to cover the whole competition or even a whole team, we decided to tell the story of one of the competitors, Alex Thompson.

Huddersfield Town in Austria

Reporting at Huddersfield v VfB Stuttgart in Schwaz

I've been in the Austrian Alps this week reporting on Huddersfield Town's training camp as they prepare for their first season in the Premier League.
On Monday we were at their training session in Brixen im Tal at the village football ground where Huddersfield were training. A stunning setting to play football!

Then on Tuesday night we travelled to Schwaz to cover Huddersfield's pre-season friendly against Bundersliga side VfB Stuttgart...

Reporting from Austria was a great experience but believe me it was hard work in 30-plus degree heat! It was a pleasure to see Huddersfield prepare for the Premier League and spend time with their fans who'd made the near thousand mile journey to the beautiful Austrian Alps.
