A musician-turned-artist who quit singing because she was too shy has found herself in the spotlight after winning the Turner Prize.

Bradford-born Elizabeth Price, 46, collected the £25,000 prize from actor Jude Law at Tate Britain in central London for her video installation show which included a film inspired by a fatal fire in a Woolworths store in Manchester.

The film, The Woolworths Choir Of 1979, features archive footage from the blaze that gutted the city centre store and left 10 people dead, mixed with architectural designs, film of a 1960s girl group and music.
