This is certainly a Corrie first. Coronation Street has been recognised by Bafta with the Observer Ethical Award for film and television, effectively making The Street the cleanest programme on television.

The awards body cites attention to detail such as acquiring the 54,000 cobbles needed to create the new set from building sites and derelict streets around Salford.
