Drownings live

I've been reporting again on the deaths of people swimming in open water. Several people died in Yorkshire in just a few days and I did a live update for the BBC Look North late bulletin.

Charitable Bank

The BBC Make A Difference campaign is calling for volunteers to help charities that are in need of your help. Mum’s United in Sheffield are wanting volunteers to help with their Charitable Bank where they provide food, clothes and toys to vulnerable people.

Self-Isolating Rules

This week I filmed with a Sheffield GP who was deeply concerned about the number of their staff having to self-isolate.

I filmed the interview with Dr Ally Hobbs from Pitsmoor Surgery in Sheffield on new camera equipment that I've just been trained on (see picture below). It's an iPhone 12 with a rig including radio mics, a top mic, a light, a tripod and a stand. I was pleased the national BBC News at Ten used my footage with Dr Hobbs in their report on the self-isolating story.

Charity Hike

I went to beautiful Malham in North Yorkshire to report on a charity hike. Our bulletin that day was on air a lot earlier than normal, at just after midday, so we filmed an 'as live' rather than a pkg/report because it was quicker to make.

Wheelchair rugby league & Sport live

This week I reported live on a new wheelchair rugby league club in Sheffield and also presented the sports news from there. It's the first time I've done the 'sports desk' when it's not been in the studio. Needing to wear a mask and the noisy environment presented made it more of a challenge.

I even had a go at the sport and loved it!
