Sarah Falkland

If ever you bump into Sarah there's one thing you don't mention to her - and that's the subject of spiders.

Sarah Falkland

Before leaving her previous job as a reporter at BBC Hereford and Worcester her colleagues tried to cure her arachnophobia by sending her to handle a tarantula at the West Midlands Safari Park.

The complete hysteria that followed has now earned her report a place in the station's archives.

But it was newspapers that were Sarah's first love, having started out in journalism as a cub reporter with the Kenilworth Weekly News before progressing to the Coventry Evening Telegraph.

Before joining the Midlands Today newsroom Sarah presented programmes and news on the BBC's local radio stations at Hereford and Worcester, Coventry and Warwickshire and WM.

Born and brought up in Warwickshire, Sarah has spent long periods of time working abroad - teaching in Spain and writing magazine features in South Africa.

She now lives in north Worcestershire and enjoys walking and mountain biking through its lovely countryside. BBC radio listeners who remember how she struggled round the London Marathon in 1999 will be pleased to hear that she hasn't been able to look at - never mind put on - her running trainers yet!
