Assemble win Turner Prize for Liverpool housing project

A regeneration scheme for derelict houses in Toxteth in Liverpool has won Britain's leading contemporary art award, the Turner Prize.

The £25,000 prize went to 15-strong London-based architecture and design collective Assemble, who have overhauled 10 houses in the area.

Judge Alistair Hudson said they were "part of a long tradition of art working in society".

Will Gompertz reports.
