Libra managing director Louise Lynch attended the ceremony with the documentary’s director and co-producer, David Barnes of David and Goliath, as well as two of the children who featured in the documentary, Phoebe Maddison and Archie Collins.

Lynch told Prolific North: “We’re delighted to have won and it was an amazing night. A couple of the children featured in the documentary flew out to New York for the ceremony which made it even more special.

“We owe a huge thanks to everyone who worked on the project and helped us pick up the award.”
