Bass guitar player Sir Paul McCartney has been named Songwriter of the Year at an awards ceremony.
The former Beatles and Wings star received the honour from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) at an event in London last night.

Other winners at the event included Coldplay, who were handed the Song of the Year award for their track Viva La Vida, while Universal Music Publishing was named Publisher of the Year.
McCartney's success comes ahead of the release of his new live album and DVD, which features the highlights of three gigs at Citi Field - formerly Shea Stadium - in New York.
