Elsewhere, Kasabian picked up the Best British Band prize at the exciting Brixton Academy ceremony and member Tom Meighan dedicated their win to The Monkees frontman Davy Jones who died yesterday:

"I want to dedicate it to Davy Jones from The Monkees who died today. He was 66 years old. My mother loved The Monkees."
