Indie quartet Alt-J have won the prestigious Barclaycard Mercury Prize for their album An Awesome Wave. The band members, who met at Leeds University in 2007, looked stunned as they collected the award - despite long being the bookies' favourites.
After five years of hard work, the band beat acts such as rapper Plan B to win the £20,000 award at the Roundhouse in Camden, north London.
Sheffield singer-songwriter Richard Hawley, who was nominated for his album Standing At The Sky's Edge, narrowly missed out again - six years after claiming he was controversially "robbed".
Accepting the award on stage, Alt-J - which comprises Thom Green (drums), Joe Newman (guitar/vocals), Gwil Sainsbury (guitarist/bassist) and Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards) - said there were too many people to thank but did thank their parents for "not making us get jobs".
Former Leeds College of Music students Roller Trio were also nominated for their eponymously-named funk-infused jazz album .
