The Ivor Novello Awards, which celebrates Britain and Ireland's songwriting and composing stars, took place last night with some of the best homegrown talent picking up gongs for their efforts over the past year.
Notable wins came from Adele, who picked up the Songwriter of the Year award following on from the release of the hugely anticipated 25 album, and Damon Albarn who nabbed the Lifetime Achievement accolade.
