Frontman of the Indie-pop group urged musicians to use their "platform" during the band's victory speech.

"I just wanna say, at the moment, I think people in pop music and in the broader public consciousness are told to stay in your lane, stay in your lane when talking about social issues.

But if you have a platform don't do that, please don't do that."

– Matt Healy

He added:

"We love you and we're very very honoured."

The Manchester-formed band beat Radiohead, Bastille, Little Mix and Biffy Clyro to win their first Brit Award.
