Mr Bragg is to be honoured for his work on humanitarian issues
Singer-songwriter Billy Bragg has been awarded with an honorary degree for his commitment to humanitarian issues.

The star, who now lives in Dorset, collected his award from Oxford Brookes University on Thursday.

A university spokesman said his work was "infused with genuine insight and humour" and a "sustained commitment to political and humanitarian issues."

Earlier this week, TV's Jeremy Clarkson was hit in the face with a cream pie as he collected his honorary degree.
