A student has been given a special award for her degree, which she took on alongside volunteering for several projects and raising two children.

Charlotte Harman won an Outstanding PLUS award from the University of Bristol, given to just eight students every year.

Ms Harman said the award would "show my kids it's never too late to pursue your dreams."

She will complete degree in Archaeology and Anthropology this year.

Alongside her degree, and looking after her two sons, she volunteered at Bristol Museum, worked with Wessex Archaeology on a project to help injured veterans, took on outreach lessons for children and helped catalogue the university's flora and fauna collection.
