The Bourne Ultimatum has taken the public-voted Film of the Year at the Richard Attenborough Film Awards in the UK.

The awards are for UK's regional film journalists and the audience winner was announced at trade event Cinema Days.

Filmgoers across the country voted for the prize, which was coordinated through 25 UK regional newspapers, magazines and websites. Voters could choose from a shortlist of 30 films.

Director Paul Green grass said: 'I am hugely honoured that the UK public has voted The Bourne Ultimatum as their favourite film in what was a fine year for the cinema. It's a real thrill that the public have enjoyed the Bourne series as much as they have. Thanks to them and to Richard Attenborough too.'

Previously, the UK regional journalists themselves voted Atonement as Film of the Year.
