50 "exceptional" students will get Stephen Hawking fellowships.

Up to 50 "exceptional" students are to be given financial support in the form of fellowships set up to honour Professor Stephen Hawking.

The renowned physicist died in March, at the age of 76, after a long battle with motor neurone disease.

Ten UK Research and Innovation Stephen Hawking Fellowships will be awarded for the next five years in the fields of maths, physics and computer sciences.

The professor's family said it was a "great tribute to his life in science".

The funding will allow the students to continue their work in any UK institution for up to three years.
