An artist from Tyneside who was one of the final four in the Turner Prize narrowly missed out on clinching the title last night.

Paul Noble, originally from Whitley Bay, was shortlisted for the prize with Luke Fowler, Elizabeth Price and Spartacus Chetwynd.

The artist spent his childhood at Whitley Bay High School before going on to do an arts foundation course at Sunderland Poly, then studying for three years at Humberside College of Higher Education.

Mr Noble, who had been shortlisted for his fantasy pencil drawings, lost out to Elizabeth Price - whose work went on display at the Baltic gallery in Gateshead.

The winning artwork, entitled "Here", was a trilogy of videos as installation artwork originally shown at the North East gallery in 2011.
