Refurbishment of Sheffield Cathedral has led it to be named Yorkshire Building of the Year at an architectural awards ceremony.

The Royal Institute of British Architects' (RIBA) annual regional awards acclaimed Thomas Ford and Partners for the creation of a new entrance to the Grade I building.

The cathedral's Gateway Project also won the Yorkshire Conservation Award.

Seven other buildings won awards at the ceremony in Leeds on Thursday night.

The new entrance at the Leeds College of Music won the Small Project Award and Howard Evans of Prue Chiles Architects was named architect of the year.
