Legendary English playwright Harold Pinter has received a honorary doctorate from Leeds University.
The 76-year-old writer, author and actor became a Doctor of Letters at a ceremony in Leeds, Yorkshire.
Pinter’s honour coincided with a three day conference discussing his huge body of work.
University Chancellor Melvyn Bragg said: “It is a great occasion. Harold is a great writer, known all over the world. Leeds University has put together these workshops and it’s terrific that I can give him an honorary degree.”
