Honorary degree for Sara Cox

Radio One presenter Sara Cox has picked up an honorary degree from the University of Bolton.

She was given a doctorate for her contributions to broadcasting.

Sara's proud parents watched from the audience with her daughter, Lola, as she was presented with her certificate by the University Vice-Chancellor, Dr George Holme, at the winter degree ceremony, held at Bolton's Victoria Hall.

Sara, a former pupil at Canon Slade School in the town, said: "I'm really proud to be receiving this award. I didn't go to university, I only got as far as my A-levels.

"But there are a lot of students here who have worked really hard for their awards."

She added: "I love coming home to Bolton. I always look forward to driving around Little Lever, looking at the spots where I grew up – where I learnt to ride my bike without stabilisers, or where I used to meet up with boys."
