LAST Of The Summer Wine creator Roy Clarke has been honoured for his work.
The veteran writer received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the British Comedy Awards on Saturday.
Mr Clarke wrote all 295 episodes of the Holmfirth-based sitcom, which ran from 1973 until last year.
He also penned the 1970s comedy series Open All Hours, starring Ronnie Barker and David Jason, and the 1990s programme Keeping Up Appearances, which featured Patricia Routledge.
Last Of The Summer Wine, which was based around the adventures of Compo, Clegg and Foggy, was the world’s longest-running sitcom.
The programme, which brought the beauty of Holmfirth into the homes of millions, peaked in popularity in the early 1980s.
The BBC cancelled the show last year after more than a decade of falling viewing figures.
Mr Clarke, 80, lives in Goole.
