Carmen Crook has been honoured for the love and support she's shown to those in her care.

There were emotional scenes on Friday night as Carmen from Bemerton Heath took to the stage at Spire FM's Local Hero Awards to receive the Parent Award.

Carmen was nominated by her foster daughter Elizabeth Hutchins who credits her with changing her life:

"I've never called anyone mum before and now I call her mum. She has helped me in a way on one else has and she has never given up on me. I'm so proud to have her in my life."

Carmen was presented with her award in front of 150 people at the Stones Hotel in Amesbury on Friday night (January 17th).
