A BRIGHT spark designer is thrilled after winning a top accolade at a lighting awards ceremony.

Director of Light and Design Associates, James Morse, 61, of Well Hill, Chelsfield won the prize for his illumination of the interior of Salisbury Cathedral at the Lighting Design Awards.

The father-of-one was delighted to pick up the award at the Park Lane Hilton Hotel on March 12.

He said: "It was a great project to work on, extremely enjoyable. It took about two-and-a-half years to complete."

Mr Morse originally trained as an electrical engineer but started working for theatre consultants in the 1970s and went on to set up Light and Design Associates in 1990.

His co-director, Lee Prince, won Designer of the Year at the prestigious awards. The firm, based in London Bridge, was also highly commended for the exterior lighting of the medieval building, which houses one of the four surviving original copies of the Magna Carta.
