    From cardboard to plastic to old furniture, most of us just throw such things away.

  6. Search for 'Good Samaritan' who helped unconscious man in Sheffield

    A person who helped the victim of an apparent assault is being sought in Sheffield.

    Division Street

    In the early hours of last Wednesday night a 29-year-old man was found lying unconscious on Division Street in the city centre.

    The man had several broken bones and serious facial injuries, a passer by called an ambulance and the man’s mother using the 29-year-old’s phone.

    Help arrived and he was taken to hospital - but police say his injuries "are not consistent with a fall" and so think he may have been the victim of an assault.

    BBC Local Live, Sheffield


    We don't usually share job averts, it's not our job.

    But exceptions sometimes come along; how about being a bee inspector?

    An odd-sounding job.

    Lifting up bees, checking them to make sure their stripes are in order?

    If it's up your street you'll know what's involved, no doubt.

  15. Protest calls for Women's Aid funding in Doncaster

    Kevin Larkin

    Political reporter, BBC Radio Sheffield

    Campaigners are calling on Doncaster Council to grant £57,000 to fund Women's Aid in South Yorkshire.

    Protestots make demands

    It comes after the local group closed in December.

    The authority says it only ever promised a start-up loan of t£30,000 to the organisation and can't give more money.

    The charity says it's vital that the council gives financial backing as the service offers invaluable help to people in desperate situations.
