Arctic Monkeys NME Awards 2014

Arctic Monkeys picked up five gongs at last night's NME awards.

The band won Best British Band, Best Live Band, Best Album and Best Fan Community, with frontman Alex Turner being awarded Hero of the Year.

Lily Allen won Best Solo Artist, while Jerry Hall presented HAIM with Best International Band.

Paul McCartney was awarded Songwriters' Songwriter and Damon Albarn was given the NME Award for Innovation.

Blondie received this year's Godlike Genius award and closed the ceremony with an eight song set.

"What an incredible night it has been," Mike Williams, editor of NME, said.

"Tonight revealed the outcome of hundreds of thousands of votes by passionate music fans, reflecting just how much fantastic music there is to be celebrated both in Britain and internationally.

"We didn't think we could top 2013, but the NME Awards with Austin, Texas this year has been the biggest and the best so far."
