A Northwood postgraduate student has won one of the most prestigious prizes in student journalism.

Zoe Uminski, 25, of Ardross Avenue, has been named Young Radio Journalist of the Year by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BCJC).

The University of Westminster student was recognised for her documentary about the so-called 'postcode lottery' of breast cancer patients' chances of access to potentially life-saving drugs, particularly herceptin.

During the making, two prospective interviewees died waiting for the drug because they lived in the wrong area.

The piece was inspired by Fay McDiarmid, the Sky News presenter who died from the disease in 2002.
