Freedom of the City for Fiona Bruce

Antiques Roadshow presenter Fiona Bruce has been awarded the freedom of the City of London.

The broadcaster was given the honour to recognise her involvement with Refuge, the national domestic violence charity, and tomorrow's International Women's Day.

The freedom is thought to date back to 1237 and has been used to celebrate the recipients' contribution to public life.

Bruce, also a news presenter, was given the honour at the Guildhall in the City today.
