Lord Winston supports British Science Festival

Professor Robert Winston has offered his support to the British Science Festival which is taking place on Tyneside this week.

Lord Winston, Professor of Science and Society and Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College London, said: "The North East of England is a powerhouse of good science and good universities.

"You've got the Centre for Life and so on and you engage the public. So it's important to support that even though it's a long trip from London."
