The Channel 4 programme Educating Yorkshire has been awarded Best Documentary Series at the National Television Awards (NTA).

Pupil Musharaf "Mushy" Asghar, who was helped by his English teacher to overcome his acute stutter, collected the award onstage.

Speaking with BBC Radio 5 live's Colin Paterson afterwards, "Mushy" said he was pleased to show that people with speech problems were "human" too.

His teacher Matthew Burton, added: "I'm so chuffed for Musharaf. A lot of kids would have wilted and not bothered and he never did."
