The cheese was voted the best of the British entries
A West Sussex cheese has been named as the fifth best in the world at an international competition.
About 2,500 cheeses from 34 countries were entered into the World Cheese Awards in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria.
The High Weald Dairy, at Tremains Farm in Horstead Keynes, also won Best British Cheese and Best English Cheese trophies for its Saint Giles product.
The semi-soft food entered into the competition was made by Michael Wisdom, one of the dairy's cheese makers.
More than 150 judges from 24 countries sampled the 2,440 entries during the contest.
The 140 cheeses given gold awards in the wide variety of categories were then tasted for a second time by an international jury of 13 experts from 10 countries.
The Saint Giles cheese, which is based on the French Port Salut, topped two categories and was rated fifth in the world category.
It is made from organic cows' milk from Tremains Farm.
