Wensleydale named the big cheese
The Wensleydale Creamery in the Yorkshire Dales has scooped the title of best cheese in Britain at the World Cheese Awards in London.

The cheese maker swept the board at the event, picking up three gold medals, four silver and one bronze.

The Hawes-based company's Mature Wensleydale was also named best English cheese and best British cheese.

Its next target is the title of supreme champion, won this year by Isigny St Mer's unpasteurised brie from France.
