A teenage musician has been presented with the highest qualification within organ music, the standard for cathedral organisations.

Henry, from Ilkley, who celebrates his birthday this week was also presented with the Turpin Durrant Prize for the second highest score in the practical component of his two-day exam.

The Royal College of Organists says he is one of organists in its 150-year history to gain a FRCO.

Henry gained nine A* grades and one A grade in his GCSEs last summer, and now attends Winchester College.
