Stannington No Gas BBC Breakfast Lives

I reported live for BBC Breakfast for the first time about the hundreds of homes in Sheffield that are still without gas supply a week after a burst water main flooded the gas network.

My first live was at 6:50am. 

Then we moved to outside the pub for my 8:05am live:

I was also on the Jeremy Vine show on BBC Radio 2:

It was freezing cold and I really feel for the residents living there having to put up with no gas for a whole week.

Dan Bradbury golf

I filmed an on the day story with the parents of Wakefield golfer Dan Bradbury who completed a fairy-tale victory with success in the Joburg Open. He was only playing thanks to a sponsor invitation in only his third professional start. The 23-year-old made the most of his opportunity, winning by three shots.

I wanted to film as much of the story as possible outside as the natural light this gives you better quality pictures than indoor footage. I had to work quickly as started filming at 12:45pm and needed to edit the story for that evening's Look North.
