A retired BBC Northern Ireland cameraman has received an MBE.

Peter Cooper, who was one of the BBC's longest serving cameramen, retired from his post in Belfast last year.

He was given the MBE by the Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace on Friday.

For more than 40 years with BBC News NI, Mr Cooper captured images of the Troubles and the peace process, which were seen by many across the world.
