  4. just seen this on look north BBC Look North (Yorkshire) Clare and Lisa are here with the latest news and weather every 30 minutes until 9am. If you live in Sheffield and want your garden waste taken away, from now on it's going to cost £60. Last year a free green bin service which had operated in part of the city was stopped. Now, a green bag scheme operating elsewhere in Sheffield, has also been scrapped. Residents will now have to pay for fortnightly collections from May to November, or dispose of the waste themselves.

  15. We all hope every session that taking a trophy shot of our latest catch will something we will have to do. However after running a photo gallery for a local club for a number of years and witnessing on the bank many times, it is clear a lot of anglers do not know how to get a good shot of their capture. Below are a few tips for getting top trophy shots so you are not disappointed. Get a digital camera Probably the most essential piece of modern fishing Photography these days and definitely worth the investment. A good digital camera these days can cost as little as £50 and still take excellent shots. position camera usually on a mini tripod on a bucket or bedchair, this allows correct framing of the shot every time without the need for a bulky full size tripod. Be able to do self take shots Having completed the set-up steps above the biggest aid is having a camera with a self-take infra-red trigger This cut out the problem of holding a fish still for the split second shot on a timer. Hold your fish correctly Out of all the points this one is the most important. I have seen so many people with shots of lovely fish yet they are cuddling and cradling them like a baby. Make sure you have your hands underneath the fish to start, front hand near the pectoral fin just with a finger either side, the other towards the tail. Present the fish with your arms straight out or slightly bent. The fish should be held vertically, if it begins to flap or wiggle immediately roll the fish gentle back onto your resting forearms until it calms down and then pop it back into position again. You can position yourself crouched or on one or two knees its up to you. Try not to hold the fish to far away from you body as this distorts the perspective and makes a fish look bigger than it actual was. With larger fish of the 30lb plus bracket I like to crouch with my knees together and rest my forearms on my legs, this not only presents the fish well but also takes some of the strain of holding the fish off your arms. With just a small amount of preparation you can ensure that when the fish of a lifetime makes an appearance you are ready to record it for posterity.
