One Direction have won the best live act prize at the Silver Clef Awards.

The boy band won a public vote beating groups including Coldplay, The Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen.

Harry Styles thanked fans and organisers Nordoff Robbins, a music therapy charity, for the award.

"We are over the moon," he said. "Congratulations to Nordoff Robbins on another amazing Silver Clef Awards. What an incredible charity, helping people with music therapy."

About 26,000 votes were cast in the awards, with One Direction taking a quarter of those.

They recently announced details of their new track, called Best Song Ever.

The single appears on a full-length trailer for their 3D documentary film called This Is Us.

Super Size Me and 30 Days director Morgan Spurlock is behind the movie, which is due for release in August.

Rapper and producer Labrinth has also been recognised at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards for his innovation in music.

"I went over to Nordoff Robbins and saw what they were doing with the kids that have disabilities and communication issues," he said.

"I thought it was genius. I loved the way they enjoyed it and they were like sponges to music, so I really loved seeing that."

Jessie Ware picked up best newcomer award.

"It surprises me and delights me but it's a bit bizarre," she said.

"It's amazing. I feel like I'm really just starting out and learning what to do so for people to be so generous to me means a lot."

Vampire Weekend are back in the UK ahead of their Glastonbury performance this weekend and also picked up the best international award.

"We haven't received too many awards in our career so far and it's nice that it is not just an award for us it's for a greater charitable act," bassist Chris Baio told Newsbeat.

The winners were announced at the annual lunchtime event in London.

The Clash won the O2 Silver Clef Award and Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees was given the lifetime achievement award.

Singer Alison Moyet took home the icon award, while Coldplay received the Best British act award.
