Former Putteridge High pupil Elizabeth Price, 46, has scooped the country’s top art award, the Turner Prize.

The one-time member of pop group Talulah Gosh won over the judges with her video installation The Woolworths Choir of 1979.

The 15 minute film – based on a furniture store disaster – combines news footage, pop clips and personal accounts of the tragedy which killed 10 at Woolworths in Manchester in 1979.
