Northumberland-born Matt Healy has bagged a Brit Award, scooping 'Best British Group' with his band The 1975.
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."
"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.
Matt Healy is the son of Geordie celebrities Denise Welsh and Tim Healy.
