Adele misses out on 'Mercury'

PJ Harvey has beaten Adele and ten other acts tro win the Mercury Music Prize.

Judges decided that her concept album 'Let England Shake' was the best British album of the past year.

It means she becomes the first act ever to win the prize twice.

Harvey previously won the award (for 'Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea') in 2001, on the day of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

She was unable to accept the prize in person because she was on tour in the US.

"Ten years ago feels like such a surreal experience for everybody," she said.

"My only memory of that day really is being in the hotel room and watching the television and seeing the Pentagon burning.
