A cider producer from Cornwall has won the top award in a national competition.

Cornish Orchards Farmhouse at Duloe, near Liskeard, was awarded gold in the Campaign for Real Ale's national cider and perry championships at Reading.

Judges described the Duloe cider as a "very light, easy-drinking cider, packed with flavour".

Cornish Orchards has more than 15 acres at Westnorth Manor Farm planted up with some 1,300 trees.

The company uses fruit produced on the farm and also sources apples grown in other parts of Cornwall.
