    Tim Berners-Lee, the man credited with the invention of the world wide web, has been named the Greatest Briton of 2004. Berners-Lee picked up a £25,000 prize at a special ceremony at the Royal Courts of Justice. He said he was just "in the right place at the right time", in the late 1980s, when he came up with the idea.

    Berners-Lee - who has previously been knighted for his work - described the award as "an amazing honour". He was one of seven winners overall, taking the prize in the science category as well as the overall award.

    "I have won awards for computers but I have never won an award for being British," he said. "I am very proud to be British, it is great fun to be British and this award is just an amazing honour."
