Triathlon Fundraiser

I've been filming a story about a group of lads taking on a triathlon for the first time to pay tribute to their good friend who died on a stag do. Sean Leonard passed away in Berlin in March last year. It's thought he had an epileptic fit. I filmed the report using my normal JVC camera and a GoPro camera which I attached to the lads as they trained to try to show their efforts from a different angle.

I've been filming a fascinating story in Sheffield. According to the police, if you give money to beggars, you are part of the problem. They say there's a big rise in the number of people begging in Sheffield and that a lot of the money the public hand over is being spent on drugs. Police officers say many of the beggars are not homeless and that if they are, there is support available. I filmed with the police on one day in the city. My story was on Look North...

...and a shorter version of my report was on BBC Breakfast...

...and two different pieces on 5 Live Breakfast...

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.

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.
