Liverpool estate project wins Turner prize


A project to regenerate part of a Liverpool estate has won the 2015 Turner prize.

Assemble - a collective of about 16 artists, architects and designers aged under 30 - clinched the prestigious £25,000 award for their work Granby Four Streets, that helped locals on the Toxteth estate transform their neighbourhood.

The London-based group were invited to help revive a patch of the south Liverpool neighbourhood "from the ground up" by residents fighting plans to demolish a number of houses in the area.
