A West Yorkshire beer has been named the best in Britain.

Timothy Taylor's Boltmaker was crowned the best beer in the country at the Great British Beer Festival in London.

The Keighley brewed real ale was judged to be the finest ahead of a host of other finalists across seven different beer categories.

The Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) competition involved bitters, ales, milds and more from small microbrewers and large regional brewers.

Timothy Taylor's head brewer Peter Eells said: "I'm speechless. We work very hard to produce great beers and we really believe this is the best beer we can brew - so to have it acknowledged in such an important competition is absolutely fantastic."

This year's silver medal went to Oakham Citra, from Peterborough, while the bronze award went to Salopian, Darwin's Origin from Shropshire.
