Listen: 'It's one of those things that sticks in your mind' - The Full Monty 20 years on

Toby Foster

Presenter, BBC Radio Sheffield

Can you believe that this month marks 20 years since The Full Monty was first released?

It's one of the biggest films of all time, and was set and filmed in Sheffield.

To mark the anniversary, there's a special screening in the city tonight, with a guest or two from the movie in attendance.

Members of the Unite the Union Brass Band played on part of the film's soundtrack and their manager, John Lee, says he has special memories of the filming 20 years ago:

Listen: Emergency meeting over anti-social behaviour in Doncaster town

Kevin Larkin

Doncaster Reporter, BBC Radio Sheffield

The mayor of a South Yorkshire town has called an emergency council meeting later today to reveal an alternative plan to tackle social problems blighting the area.

Earlier this year, BBC Radio Sheffield spoke to residents of Edlington, near Doncaster, at a meeting held in March about some of the issues they were facing:

Edlington's mayor, Frank Arrowsmith, says although the vast majority of local residents are decent people, he believes they're being let down by council officials and the police who apparently haven't turned up to meetings of a task force set up to deal with the problems.

So just how bad are things? This is what Mr Arrowsmith has to say ahead of today's planned meeting:

Anti-social behaviour and incidents of criminal damage and burglary have also reduced significantly in the past few months. We recognise there is still much work to do, but Edlington remains a key priority for us."
