Tuffers drops in on Barnsley Artist

By Mike Cotton, Town Reporter Friday 7th March 2014

SCULPTOR Graham Ibbeson had a special visit from England cricketer-turned-television personality Phil Tufnell.

Tuffers was recording an interview that will be shown on BBC's The One Show next month focussing on black footballers and the prejudice they faced in the past.

Graham is currently working on statues of the famous former footballers and one of them - Cyrille Regis - was also in the Barnsley studio to talk with Graham and Tuffers about the prejudice and the threats Cyrille and others faced.
