Arts prize honours bombing victim
Ethnicity Swap Self (native American) by Antoinette Noel
Copland School pupil Antoinette Noel's work won her the prize
A 15-year-old schoolgirl has won an arts prize set up in memory of one of the victims of the London bombings.

Antoinette Noel, a pupil at Copland School in Brent, north-west London, won the Miriam Hyman Memorial Prize.

The accolade was set up in memory of Ms Hyman, 32, who was killed in the Tavistock Square explosion last July.

Antoinette is a member of the Tricycle Young Artists Group, which used Ms Hyman's own art materials to create their own paintings.

Her painting, Ethnicity Swap Self, won her a 50 voucher for art materials.

Work by Ms Hyman, a picture editor, and her mother Mavis was showcased at the Tricycle Gallery in north-west London on Monday.

Proceeds from the sales of cards and paintings at the event will be donated to the Memorial Fund set up in her name which has already raised 30,000 for charity.
