WATCH: German-born architect awarded 1944 medal

A 94-year-old retired architect has been given an award, seventy years after he first earned it.

Antony Wolffe was recognised for his outstanding work as a student in the 1940s, but because he was an exile from Germany, it was deemed too sensitive to present the award to him at the time.

Hannah McNulty went to meet him at an exhibition displaying his work from his days as a student.

The Charity Commission says it is planning to meet the governors of a closure-threatened independent school in West Cumbria.

St Bees, which has charitable status, first announced on 13 March it would shut this summer because of falling pupil numbers.

About a thousand people have signed a petition calling for the school's governors to resign.

"We have recently received complaints informing us of the governors' plan to close the school.

"We have contacted the governors for information regarding the situation and the decisions that were taken, and to make them aware of the importance of reporting serious incidents to us.

"The governors have responded to us and we are currently planning a meeting with them."

– Spokesperson for the Charity Commission

A spokesperson for the school told ITV Border that St Bees contacted the Charity Commission after a public meeting in April:

"The Commission issues specific guidance about reporting serious incidents and the Charity would always observe such guidance, however none of the categories covered by that guidance has arisen.

"Nevertheless the Charity has been advised that following a decision to close St Bees School a notification should be made and that was done after the meeting of 16 April 2015 when the Governors confirmed the decision to proceed to an orderly closure."

Ryan Gosling has created a vine in tribute to a Dumfries-born film-maker who has died from cancer.

Ryan McHenry gained fame as the creator of the popular 'Ryan Gosling Won't Eat His Cereal' vine series.

In the short comedy videos, McHenry holds spoonfuls of cereal up to a television screen, making Gosling, acting in many of his serious film roles, appear to refuse to eat it.

They gained worldwide fame, with the actor himself learning of them.

On hearing of his death, Gosling paid tribute by creating a vine of himself finally eating his cereal.
