Give Burngreave A Break

A few weeks ago, a young man was shot dead in Burngreave, Sheffield – the area in which I live. It’s always upsetting to hear about loss of life, particularly such young life, but it wouldn’t be right for me to try and comment on the ins and outs of what happened in a situation I know nothing about.

The tragic news, however, prompted a backlash of negative comments about the area – many of which I felt were unfair. I was asked to write a comment piece on the negative publicity surrounding Burngreave for Verita Magazine. You can find the piece in full here.
