Two Western Morning News journalists have been recognised for their work, as part of a celebration of the regional press.

Feature writer Janet King and food editor Becky Sheaves both collected awards at the EDF Energy South West Media Awards yesterday.

Mrs Sheaves was named columnist of the year, while Ms King retained the award for feature writer of the year.

WMN reporters and writers Lyn Barton, Jackie Butler, Martin Hesp, Gillian Molesworth and Liz Parks were also nominated for awards, while the paper narrowly missed out on newspaper of the year.

Philip Bowern, deputy editor, said: "For the WMN to have so many nominations at this year's EDF Energy South West Media Awards is a recognition of its commitment to top quality journalism. Janet King, feature writer of the year for the second year running, and Becky Sheaves, columnist of the year, both richly deserve their awards."
