Peer's peerless preserve

A marmalade produced by Environment Minister Lord Henley has won the top prize at the World Marmalade Awards. The Tory peer's recipe, which was originally his mother's, was named Best In Show at at the annual ceremony in Cumbria over the weekend.

The preserve will be produced by specialists sold at London's Fortnum & Mason.
