We’re delighted to hear that Chris Beardshaw has won his sixth gold medal at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, for his design of the The Morgan Stanley Garden for Great Ormond Street Hospital. There can surely be no better permanent home for his latest creation than Great Ormond Street Hospital, where it will provide a much needed sanctuary for families and staff.

Good luck Chris, we know you’ll do it and provide more golden moments for some people who couldn’t deserve it more.

Our films capture the reaction to the report from some of the industry’s leading female figures, including Jayne-Anne herself.
