Baroness Doreen Lawrence has picked up a special award at the 18th Mobos for the charitable trust set up in the name of her murdered son.

She collected a BeMobo award on behalf of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust during a ceremony at Scotland's newest entertainment venue The Hydro.

The award recognises people and organisations who "represent the Mobo values for forward thinking and are active in their communities".

Mobo founder Kanya King praised the trust as a "catalyst for change and solidarity" that did "phenomenal" work to support young people from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds.

Accepting the award, Baroness Lawrence said:

Soul singer Laura Mvula won two gongs at the star-studded ceremony.

She picked up her first award of the night for best female act, beating off competition from Jessie J, Jessie Ware, Lianna La Havas and Rita Ora, and went on to win best R&B or soul artist.

The singer gave a live performance of songs from her debut Mercury Prize-nominated album Sing To The Moon.

Rapper Tinie Tempah opened the ceremony with a rendition of Trampoline and later won the gong for best UK hip hop or grime act, the second time he has bagged the award.

Wiley picked up the gong for best male act, his first ever Mobo, while Naughty Boy won best song and best video for La La La.

Rudimental were presented with the best album award during the Glasgow ceremony, hosted by BBC 1Xtra's Trevor Nelson and Sarah-Jane Crawford.
