A levels: Sir Lenny Henry takes calls at Birmingham City University

Sir Lenny Henry has been manning the phones at Birmingham City University (BCU) from A-level students who have just received their results.

The comedian and actor, who was appointed Chancellor at BCU in 2016, said he had been up answering phones since 06:00 from worried students who were applying through clearing.

He said education offered the chance to transform people's lives.
