Sande takes two at Ivors Awards

Chart-topping songwriter Emeli Sande was a double winner at the Ivor Novello Awards.

Her single Next To Me was named best song musically and lyrically, and the track also carried off the prize for most performed work.

Former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher was also among the big name winners as he was rewarded for his outstanding song collection.

Since quitting the band he has established an acclaimed solo career releasing an album, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, in 2011.

The awards, now in their 58th year, are much-prized by the music industry as they are chosen by songwriters and composers.

Mercury Prize-winners Alt-J took the award for best album with An Awesome Wave at ceremony, staged at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

One of the most cherished awards, best contemporary song, went to Pelican by The Maccabees, who were also Mercury nominees last year.

Dance music star Calvin Harris, said to be dating fellow pop act Rita Ora, was named songwriter of the year. Calvin, whose hit singles include the number ones I'm Not Alone and Sweet Nothings, recently set a new record after he became the first artist to have eight top 10 hits from one album, all drawn from his release 18 Months.

Marc Almond, who began his career with Soft Cell and went on to have a string of hits on his own, was given the inspiration award.

Former Moody Blues star Justin Hayward was given the outstanding achievement prize, while US songwriter and performer Randy Newman - who has lately been more noted for his film soundtracks to movies such as Toy Story - was given the international award.
