So upset @AdmiralUK that despite comprehensive insurance inc breakdown cover, courtesy cars etc so I can always get to work, I'm having to get taxis to & from my shifts in ITU this week with my car down the hill from my house as it's too near my house for the AA?! @GeorgeTorr_

Bin Collections & HWRCs SUSPENDED

We can confirm - in conjunction with our partners Suez - that collection of black & blue bins for today is suspended due to adverse weather conditions in most parts of the borough. The health and safety of staff and residents must take priority.

Instagram now awash with influencers putting stuff out about how they’re actually working really hard in Dubai, live there, have a boyfriend who must be there, etc. This is not going down that well. By me and @matthew_weaver:

Took this photo yesterday of panic buying and empty bread aisles and readers accuse you of using an old picture from March to 'scaremonger' and accuse you of fake news. I SAW IT WITH MY OWN EYES AND TOOK THE PICTURE!

An old favourite from 1973, £10m monorail plan for Sheffield city centre. Driverless carriages would take passengers from the station, above Hole In The Road, up to Fargate before hooking past Town Hall and The Moor. Intended as the pilot for Govt scheme but quietly disappeared.

1st thing this morning @MyDoncaster chopped down the last 2 trees on #middlefieldroad following an inspection last week(with no arborist present) There was zero communication or explanation & they’d agreed a moratorium on felling all street trees(unless an emergency) Sneaky much?

Council’s good faith and sit down with campaigners all for nothing ... doubt councillors knew what was going on, executive decision no doubt.
