Shaun the Sheep has won an award for the best children's series at the British Animation Awards.

The CBBC show is made by Aardman Animations, the same Oscar-winning company that created Wallace and Gromit.

Aardman also won another top prize for A Matter of Loaf and Death, a mock murder mystery in which Wallace and Gromit start a new bakery business.

The awards ceremony recognises the best of British and European animation.
