The Star end-of-year review: The biggest Sheffield stories for The Star's readers in 2023

For good or bad, these were the biggest stories to rock Sheffield in 2023.

Whether through their wide-reaching impact, massive controversy or even just warming a few hearts, these were the biggest stories in Sheffield this year.

The Star has curated this review of the headlines in 2023 using 16 stories that got the city talking the most.

Who can forget the time an illegal rave somewhere in Attercliffe kept the entire city awake on night in February?

Or how the city threw a promotion parade for Sheffield United in May, only to throw another for the Owls just three weeks later?

There was that time when everyone had something to say about how 30,000 people and a weekend of torrential rain over Tramlines turned Hillsborough Park into a mudbath.

Or even when everyone's spirits were lifted to hear John Burkhill had hit his goal of raising £1m for MacMillan Cancer Research.

Here are 16 stories to mark the end of 2023 in Sheffield.
