BBC Radio 4's Money Box has been named best financial programme for the second year in a row at a top awards ceremony.

Money Box presenter Paul Lewis was also honoured, winning the prestigious Lifetime Achievement award for Financial Journalism.

The ABI (Association of British Insurers) awards are held each year in London to "celebrate excellence in journalism".

The ABI is the trade association for Britain's insurance industry.

Money Box was praised by the judges as being "authoritative, topical and entertaining" and "does not just report the news, but looks to make the news".

Paul Lewis was called "tough, inquisitive, but fair" and "always knows the right questions to ask".

Fifteen awards were voted for by the communication and press teams at ABI's member insurance companies.

The Guardian was named Personal Finance Newspaper of the Year, while the Daily Mail's This is Money was named best financial website.

The Personal Finance Journalist award went to John Greenwood of the Sunday Telegraph and Corey Boles of the Dow Jones took the Business Journalist prize.

Best Personal Finance Editor of the Year award was given to John Husband of the Daily Mirror.

BBC Radio 4's Money Box is broadcast on Saturdays at 1204 BST and Money Box Live is broadcast on Mondays at 1502 BST.
