  7. Sheffield Endcliffe Park fly-past: What you need to know

    If you're heading to the Endcliffe Park fly-past in Sheffield on Friday, expect crowds, a bit of waiting around and - hopefully - some decent weather.

    Endcliffe Park Cafe

    The fly-past will mark the anniversary of a fatal crash of a US B-17 Flying Fortress at the park in 1944 which killed 10 American airmen.

    Thousands of people are expected to make the trip to Endcliffe Park which means traffic around the area will be very busy.

    Sheffield City Council is asking people not to drive as there won't be any parking available.

    Instead, bus services will drop people off at the park gates, with free travel for members of the armed forces and veterans with valid ID cards.

    People are asked to arrive in good time, at about 07:15, to get their spot for the show on the open field in Endcliffe Park.

    It looks like the weather for tomorrow will be dry too, with temperatures at about 11C (52F).

  8. Billy Sharp: Sheffield United striker extends contract

    BBC Sport

    Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp has signed a new two-year-deal.

    Billy Sharp

    The 33-year-old, who has scored more English league goals this century than anyone else, has 22 goals and two assists this season.

    Sharp is in his third spell with his hometown club and helped them win the League One title in 2017.

    Meanwhile, full-back Enda Stevens, 28, has signed a new three-year deal with the Blades, who are second in the Championship.

    Boss Chris Wilder told the club website: "Both new contracts are fully deserved, they have been outstanding in their respective areas of the pitch.

  9. Wildlife Park's chilled polar bears get frozen treat

    Four chilled out polar bears have been frolicking on huge piles of ice donated to their South Yorkshire home.

    Bears in ice

    Rangers at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, near Doncaster, replicated more Arctic-friendly conditions for Nobby, Nissan, Pixel and Victor to play in on Tuesday.

    Bears in ice

    The bears looked at home as five tons of donated ice melted into the grass under them.

    The group "absolutely loved playing around in the ice", a park spokesperson said.

  11. Sheffield Endcliffe Park fly-past: Where to see it

    If you want to catch a glimpse of tomorrow's anniversary fly-past in the skies over Sheffield, there are plenty of places to see it.

    The fly-past route

    The fly-past will mark the anniversary of a fatal plane crash in a Sheffield park in 1944 and will take place after a campaign led by BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker.

    We're expecting a mix of aircraft, including an F-15 fighter jet, Typhoons, Ospreys and a Dakota.

    It's thought that they will fly over in a staggered formation, so it won't be a "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" moment, following the red line above.

    The main action will happen over Endcliffe Park near the city centre at 08:45 on Friday.

    But if you're wanting to watch it there, you're asked to arrive using public transport or on foot by 07:15.

    There will be no car parking near the park.

    The council also recommends vantage points like Bolehills Park, Park Hill flats, Skye Edge playing fields and the Botanical Gardens.

  12. Watch: Stolen lorry careers into house after killing woman

    This is the moment a stolen lorry careered into the side of a house last September after running down and killing a woman in Barnsley.

    Four men were jailed today for the death of Jacqueline Wileman, who died after she was struck by the vehicle in Brierley on 14 September.

    After hitting mother-of-two Mrs Wileman, the lorry smashed into the side of a nearby house, partially destroying the building:
