PAUL DANIELS has received an international award for services to magic.
The 76-year-old, of Willow Lane, Wargrave, received the Golden Grolla at a ceremony in Saint-Vincent, about 50 miles north of Turin.
He was nominated by the Masters of Magic Congress.
Daniels said: “The congress, organised by Walter Rolfo, were kind enough to decide that I should receive the award.
“I’ve had quite a lot of awards so when I heard about this one and a trip to Italy I thought it seemed very nice. When I looked it up I realised it’s quite a big award. It’s actually quite valuable and I’ve had to get it insured.
