Ey up, @cutleryworks is good innit? Bit late to the Kelham Island party I know, but there are so many places in this bit of Sheffield I want to explore. Every time I come there’s a new bar or restaurant or bike lane or filtered neighbourhood. @helenpidd Helen Pidd Videos and pictures

This is progress - Highway Code will tell drivers to stop for pedestrians and introduce a hierarchy based on the principle that those who can do the greatest harm have the greatest responsibility to avoid it @helenpidd Helen Pidd Videos and pictures

Yisroel Binstock, the rabbi from Hale synagogue, has come with a group of young people to show solidarity with @MarcusRashford - “The Jewish community knows what it is like to be racially discriminated against and we wanted to show our support and say that hate will not win.” @helenpidd Helen Pidd Videos and pictures

I don't understand how some areas (eg Twickenham, Bolton, Manchester) seem to be getting away with quite blatantly offering jabs to all over 18s, regardless of vulnerability/eligibility, while Blackburn cannot.
