And the winners are...

There were double celebrations all over the North West last night. Our People's Property Award has gone down a storm with over 30,000 votes cast in the competition to find the public's favourite modern building across the region.

The winner was Aintree Racecourse. Collecting the award was the architect, Gavin Elliot from BDP.

But I'm also excited about a double win for Insider last night at the Merseyside Media Network Awards. My lads Neil Tague and Damien Wiehl won in the best business writer and best designer categories. David Casey even won the raffle!

Damien is a really imaginative designer. He can produce magazine covers of incredible complexity as well as others with breathtaking simplicity. What they all have in common is a refreshing originality. I'm so pleased his talent has been recognised in such a way.

This is his masterpiece of the last year:

Taguey is on a stag do in Spain somewhere so wasn't even there to get his award. Here's a picture taken last year of him contemplating his next exciting news scoop.
