A restaurant owner was recognised as a high achiever in Britain's Turkish Cypriot community.

Selin Kiazim, from Southgate, who was also a winner on this year's BBC Two TV show Great British Menu, was awarded the female 2017 Best Champion of Turkish Cypriot Culture Award by the Council of Turkish Cypriot Associations in Britain (CTCA UK).

Ms Kiazim's "muhallebi" dessert was selected for the TV show's banquet in honour of the 140th Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

She cooks food inspired by her Turkish Cypriot roots in her restaurant, Oklava, in Shoreditch, as well as her newly published cookbook of the same name.

CTCA UK chairman Leyla Kemal said: "Our community's numerous successes demonstrate that we have been able to adapt to new environments, while at the same time retaining our traditions and culture, which we continue to share with younger generations and fellow Britons."

Dragon's Den investor Touker Suleyman, author Sibel Hodge, British Judo champion Acelya Toprak and Love Island winner Kem Cetinay were also winners at the event, which took place in October in London's Russell Square.
