The Birmingham MP Estelle Morris and Dudley born actress Josie Lawrence have received honorary degrees from the University of Wolverhampton.

Ms Lawrence received her award in recognition of her contribution to the theatrical world and her charity work.

Ms Morris was awarded an honorary Degree of Doctor of Education.

Each of the university's 10 academic schools makes awards to recognise individual achievement in specialist fields.

Ms Morris says she thinks very highly of the university.

"I have a lot of admiration for what they do and to be selected by them to have this honour is something very special."
