  8. Man convicted over driverless car bomb plot

    A man has been found guilty of trying to make a bomb to be used in a driverless car.

    Farhad Salah

    Farhad Salah, of Brunswick Road, Sheffield, was convicted at Sheffield Crown Court of preparing to commit acts of terrorism.

    Jurors heard how Salah, 24, an Iraqi Kurd, posted on social media about using a driverless car in an attack.

    The jury failed to reach a verdict on his co-defendant, chip-shop owner Andy Star, who was charged with the same offence.

    Prosecutors told the trial how Salah and Mr Star, 32, were in the early stages of testing small improvised explosive devices when they were arrested in raids on their homes in a Sheffield community centre and a Chesterfield fish and chip shop in December 2017

    Mr Star, from Chesterfield, has always insisted gunpowder and other items found in his flat above the chip shop were all connected to his long-standing interest in fireworks.

    Salah is due to be sentenced on 24 July.

  9. Owls owner buys Hillsborough to ensure club makes profit

    BBC Sport

    Sheffield Wednesday sold their Hillsborough stadium for about £60m to owner Dejphon Chansiri to try to ensure they did not breach spending rules.

    Hillsborough

    Sheffield Wednesday Football Club Limited sold the ground for a profit of more than £38m, helping them record a pre-tax profit of £2.5m for 2017-18.

    The accounts say an "income" of £61.2m is to come from "related parties".

    Chansiri, their only active director, had previously said the club broke financial rules by "eight figures".

    Without the sale of the ground, Wednesday would have posted a pre-tax loss of £35.4m.

  11. Boy, 3, survives six-metre fall into Peak District hole

    The family of a three-year-old boy who survived after falling into a six-metre deep hole in the Peak District are appealing to help the hospital who saved him.

    MARK, SAM, OSCAR AND LOUISE TUCKETT

    Sam Tuckett (second from left), from Sheffield, was enjoying a family day out when he suddenly disappeared as he was walking with his six-year-old brother Oscar, just a few steps ahead of his parents Louise and Mark in the Burbage Rocks area, near Hathersage.

    Mr Tuckett, 40, (above left) managed to squeeze into the tiny space - a gap no bigger than a sheet of A3 paper - and realised his son had hit his head and body on the rocks as he fell.

    After his dad managed to bring him to the surface, Sam was taken to Sheffield Children's Hospital where a team of 10 members of staff spent eight-hours stabilising him.

    His family are now backing the Children’s Hospital Charity’s £4.5m appeal to transform the emergency department.

    “We experienced first-hand that the Emergency Department needs to be developed", said Mrs Tuckett (pictured second-right).

    "The care was fantastic, but we never realised how well the staff manage with the limited space."
