A Somerset teenager has become the youngest person in Britain to receive an honorary doctorate.

Seventeen-year-old 'Bird Girl' Mya-Rose Craig has set her eyes on half of the world's bird species.

In addition to this, she has pioneered work campaigning for greater diversity in conservation, resulting in her receiving an honorary doctorate from Bristol University.
