Adele triumphs at the Brit Awards

Singer Adele has capped a year of global success with two prizes at this year's Brit Awards ceremony in London.

The star added the Brits for best British female and British album to the six Grammy Awards she won last weekend - but was beaten to the award for best British single by former X Factor boy band One Direction.

Ed Sheeran also won best British male and British breakthrough - while Coldplay were crowned best British group for a record third time.
