David Bowie's final album 'Blackstar' has won the Mastercard British Album Of The Year at the Brit awards - his second posthumous award of the night.

Picking up the award on behalf of his father was the star's son Duncan Jones who announced: "this award is for all the kooks and all the people who make the kooks".

In the touching speech Jones said: "I was spending a lot of time after getting over the shock, of trying to work out what would I want my son to know about his grandad and I think it would be the same thing most of my dad's fans have taken over the last 50 years.

"He's always been there supporting people who think they're a little bit weird or a little bit strange, a little bit different, he's always been there for them. So this award is for all the kooks and all the people who make the kooks."
