Nice to see there's so much positivity surrounding our youth who try to make something of themselves. Both Ben and Colby are hard-working apprentices and working for WAB has given them a great opportunity to forge a career into something they are interested in. People speak how they speak - I was once told by a BBC journalist that I'd never be a reporter because of my Barnsley accent.
Instead of picking flaws on Colby's natural speaking voice - which we think is very engaging - perhaps we should celebrate the fact that two Barnsley young people (aged 18 and 17) are making such a valuable contribution to the media.

Give the lad a break, he did OK.

As for the £1million, I'd wait until the euro-lottery gets up to £50 million again & by us all a couple of tickets each. Imagine the collective excitement around the town before the draw.
