A best-selling author who created the fictional North East detective "Vera", will be presented with an honourary Doctorate of Letters from Sunderland University today.
Ann Cleeves is an immensely successful writer, and the mind behind one of ITV's biggest crime dramas.
Four series of Vera, the ITV adaptation starring Brenda Blethyn, have been broadcast in the UK, and sold worldwide, and a fifth is in preparation.
Ann Cleeves said:
“I’m a North Easterner by choice, not by birth. It’s easier to write about a place as an outsider. People who live in the region perhaps sometimes take for granted just how beautiful the region is, and how nice people here are.”
