Lord Campbell-Savours has been made an Honorary Fellow of the University of Cumbria.

The Cumbrian peer and former Workington MP was given the honour in recognition of his support to higher education in Cumbria, and his outstanding contribution to the economy in the west of the county.

He was an early supporter of the University and told the ceremony in Carlisle he was 'honoured' to be recognised in this way.
