Written by George Barton

Good morning and welcome to today’s coverage of Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

Here’s a quick look at some of the stories coming up today.

There was police action against protesters yesterday in Sheffield City centre – who were demonstrating against Turkey’s recent attacks on Kurdish positions in Northern Iraq.

Parents on the Waverley estate in Rotherham have expressed their anger after their children were refused admission to Waverley Academy. The school was built to accommodate for children on the estate – but has a shortage of spaces.

A protest is taking place this Saturday, outside City Hall, demanding a full ban of so-called ‘conversion therapy’ that protects transgender people, as a new law currently only covers those who are gay and bisexual.

In sport, Barnsley Football Club sacked their manager Poya Asbaghi yesterday after the team was relegated from the Championship.

And much more.
