A Nottingham-born actress has received an honorary degree from the university where her mother and grandmother worked as dinner ladies.
Samantha Morton, who was born in Clifton, was made a Doctor of Letters at the University of Nottingham yesterday.
She told the BBC: "If they were alive today they'd just be over the moon I'm here actually getting a degree, someone from my background actually achieving that is extraordinary."
She also spoke about her experience as a child in the city's care system, responding to this summer's IICSA report.
"The abuse I and my friends suffered is equivalent to hell," she said. "The system was not, and still isn't, fit for purpose.
"They were allowed to do what they did because there were not proper systems in place. How are we going to get justice?"
