Duffy awarded an honorary degree

Singer-songwriter Duffy has been awarded an honorary degree for her services to music.

The 'Mercy' hitmaker was given the accolade by the University of Bangor during the institute's graduation ceremony on Monday, July 11 and said of it:

"I'm delighted to be back in North Wales. It's a great honour."

Dr. David Roberts, the University's registrar, congratulated Duffy and explained that "Bangor University has a strong tradition of recognising, with the award of honorary fellowships, the achievements of various men and women in different walks of life."

"Our fellows will add great distinction and glamour to the ceremonies at which we also recognise the achievements of our students."
