Two world-renowned scientists have received prestigious awards from the Royal Society.
Sir Alan Fersht and Sir Philip Cohen were presented with the Royal Medals at a ceremony on Monday which marked the 350th anniversary of the Royal Society.
Only three of the silver gilt medals, also known as the Queen’s Medals, are awarded each year to those working within the Commonwealth.
Sir Alan, a Cambridge University professor, was given the accolade for his work in protein engineering.
