Kell feared for life but will return 'fitter and stonger'

Sheffield's boxing world champion Kell Brook has told Calendar he feared for his life and his family after being stabbed in the leg whilst on holiday.

The 26-year-old was on holiday with his pregnant wife and 2-year-old daughter, celebrating the world title he won in Los Angeles just 2 weeks before, when he was the victim of an unprovoked attack.

Kell is now back home recovering from his injury and has promised to come back fitter and stronger. He spoke to Calendar reporter Chris Dawkes:

Since adopting Normanton Hill as one of their community concern sites in July, the South Yorkshire Safety Camera Partnership has carried out spot checks on nine separate occasions. This resulted in identifying a staggering 471 offences on Normanton Hill, with an average of over 24 offences an hour.

The highest recorded speed on the road was 66mph – more than double the legal speed limit for that stretch.

Among these vehicles was one car overtaking at 66mph at the crossing! This is dangerous beyond words. I’m pleased we have fined these illegal drivers, who are putting lives at risk. We will keep this enforcement action going until people get the message.

– Councillor Jack Scott

On the mend Kell wants to take on Mayweather

Calendar's Weekend Weather Outlook

SATURDAY Credit: ITV/Met office

High pressure over northern Europe will keep our weather settled this weekend so we can expect mainly dry conditions with light winds. There will be some sunshine but at times quite a lot of cloud. The air flowing round the 'high' has its origins in the Mediterranean so it will be on the warm side by day. The nights are longer now so it will be quite chilly around dawn.

SATURDAY AM Credit: ITV/Met Office

Early mist patches will clear. Most places will be dry with sunny breaks. There will be cloudier skies in the Pennines/Peak District though and this could give a little light rain or drizzle here.

SATURDAY PM Credit: ITV/Met Office

Most places will be dry. Most places will see some sunshine too, but the best of this will be east of the A1. Hills in the west will be rather more cloudy. Temperatures are still above those expected for late September. It'll feel muggy too.

SUNDAY Credit: ITV/Met Office

Another chilly start to Sunday but we can all look forward to a nice day with sunny spells and light winds. It'll feel warm in the afternoon too with highs pushing 20ºC.

Have a nice weekend and as ever, keep up to date with the forecast here or on ITV brought to you this weekend by Kerrie Gosney.
