Dales star Amanda Owen handed Yorkshire Countryside award

Amanda Owen, shepherdess and star of ITV's The Dales, has won the Countryside award at the 2014 Yorkshire Awards.

The mother-of-seven grew up in Huddersfield and was inspired after reading a book about shepherds.

"It's a good place to live," she said. "You have the scenery, the animals. You have no mobile signal, which for me doesn't matter."
