Laura Mvula is now favourite to win this year's Mercury Prize according to William Hill.

She's moved up ahead of David Bowie after what the bookmaker's calling the "biggest price move in the history of betting on the event".

Her debut album Sing To The Moon is now their 5 to 2 favourite to win the award on Wednesday night at the Roundhouse.

The likes of Foals, Arctic Monkeys and Jake Bugg are also on the shortlist.
