    Any daytime showers should fade during the evening, with clearer spells likely overnight. Winds will become light, leading to the risk of a few mist or fog patches by dawn.

    Oli Constable

    The Met Office say that today is the last day of summer! Enjoy it? I know, short lived...

    Oli Constable

    Today is the second day of the Chicago Rock demolition and as you can see from the photos below, the main tower has been taken down.

    One of the main roads through Barnsley, West Way, is still closed as the demolition takes place.

    Sheffield United signing Caolan Lavery is the first player to cross the Steel City divide in more than a decade.

  7. 'Willett be nine holes, or 18 today sir?'

    Oli Constable

    Danny Willett will never have to drive around the Rotherham Golf Club car park in his brand new white Ferrari California looking for a parking space.

    That's because they've given him his own spot, following his Masters win back in April.

    More than 60 of the best jet skiers in the world will be there showing off their skills.

    Anyone can go along and watch the events for free down by the lakeside, which is part of the wider St Leger Festival week.

  9. Salmon return to River Don

    Sheffield Star

    River Don

    Work has started to help salmon - described as South Yorkshire’s champion swimmers - to return to the River Don.

    Salmon are occasionally found in the river but getting over weirs built in the 19th Century is preventing many from making their way upstream to spawn.

  10. TV presenter being treated in Leeds hospital

    TV presenter Charlie Webster, who contracted malaria in Brazil, is back in the UK and being treated at St James's Hospital in Leeds.  

    Charlie Webster

    The 33-year-old, who's from Sheffield, fell ill during the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics. 

    She'd just completed a 3,000 mile charity bike ride in aid of the Jane Tomlinson Appeal. 

    Her condition is described as "serious but stable".  

  11. Sheffield gets first glimpse of future for grassroots football

    Oli Constable

    A new £7m community football hub is to open this week in Sheffield.

    The Parklife Football Hub Programme pilot is to open in the south of city and will be known as St George’s Park Sheffield Graves.

    Ariel football pitches

    The FA hub will include state-of-art 3G football pitches, will act as a focal point for grassroots football activity in the local area and offer greater access to player and coach development opportunities.

    A second hub, called St George’s Park Sheffield Thorncliffe, will open in the north of the city next month.

  12. Watch: Lindrick golf course on par with the world's greatest golfers

    Reporter BBC Look North

    Worksop's Lee Westwood has been selected as one of Team Europe's Wildcard picks for the Ryder Cup which takes place in September.

    That makes a hat-trick for Lindrick Golf Course in South Yorkshire!

    That's because along with Matt Fitzpatrick and Danny Willett, they've got three fully paid-up members competing in the Ryder Cup this year.

    I took two pairs of trousers along with me to see why they're so popular! Why two trousers I hear you ask? Well, it's in case I got a hole in one!

  13. Transfer deadline day: Latest news for our clubs

    Jonathan Buchan

    BBC Radio Sheffield Sport

    Sheffield United forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin looks set to join Premier League side Everton after the two clubs agreed a fee.

    The Blades are believed to be in talks with Wolves over a loan deal for defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell.

    Ethan

    Barnsley have completed the signing of QPR defender Cole Kpekawa on a three-year-deal from QPR.

    And Chesterfield winger Gboly Ariyibi may be forced to hand in a late transfer request should he want to complete a late move away from the Proact Stadium.

  14. Thousands sign petition over closure of Barnsley stroke centre

    BBC Radio Sheffield

    More than 3,000 people have signed a petition to stop the closure of a specialist stroke centre in Barnsley.

    The town's NHS trust is to start a public consultation next month over plans that would see patients taken to Doncaster, Sheffield or Chesterfield instead - for the first 72 hours of treatment.

    The trust say the proposals would provide better quality of care.

  15. Cliff Richard abuse claims to be reviewed

    The decision not to prosecute Sir Cliff Richard over claims of historical sex offences is being reviewed following a challenge by one of his accusers.

    The singer was the subject of a long-running South Yorkshire Police investigation which centred on sexual assault accusations dating between 1958 and 1983 made by four men.

    Cliff Richard

    The 75-year-old was never arrested or charged and his case was dropped in June on the grounds of insufficient evidence.

    A spokesman for the CPS confirmed they have received an application under the victims' right to review scheme over the decision made in relation to the star.
