Helena Bonham Carter and her partner, director Tim Burton, have been recognised for their work in the film industry.

They have been awarded fellowships by the BFI at the London Film Festival Awards.

During her acceptance speech at a ceremony last night, she thanked her parents who were both in the audience.

The best picture award went to "Rust And Bone" which is a movie about the relationship between a bare-knuckle boxer and a whale trainer, starring Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard.

The festival finishes later with a gala screening of Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations" starring Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes.
