Durham Cathedral has been voted Britain's favourite building in a survey of the best and worst of British architecture.
The Norman cathedral - which along with Durham Castle dominates the city's skyline - won more than 51% of votes cast by listeners to BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Other buildings also rated highly by the 15, 819 people who voted included more modern structures like the Eden Project, in Cornwall (22.5%), London's Tate Modern (11.96%) and Stansted Airport (7.02%).
