Doctor Kate Granger, 31, was the star of the show as she picked up the the Unsung Hero award.

Kate, from Wakefield, is continuing her work at Pinderfields Hospital despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer last year.

She said: “I am just overwhelmed with all of the recognition I have had recently.”
