A WHEATLEY man won an Oscar at this year's Academy Awards.

Sound mixer Niv Adiri was honoured at the 86th Academy Awards in Los Angeles.

Mr Adiri, 39, was, along with his three colleagues, awarded the Oscar for best sound mixing on space drama Gravity, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

The awards were presented by actors Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron.

Mr Adiri, who works at Studio 24, based at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, also won a BAFTA just over two weeks ago for his work on the blockbuster film.
