Adele has won the best pop video at this year's UK Music Video Awards, while JLS picked up the people's choice plaudit.

Adele triumphed with Rolling in the Deep, while JLS were honoured for Eyes Wide Shut featuring Tinie Tempah.

In her video, Adele is featured in a derelict house surrounded by hundreds of glasses and broken crockery.

The 23-year-old singer is currently recovering after an operation on her throat.

She was forced to cancel tour dates in America in October, as well as six gigs in the UK, after suffering a vocal cord haemorrhage.

Dcotors say she is expected to make a full recovery.

'Creative force'

The fourth UK Music Video Awards ceremony took place in London's Leicester Square.

Tinie Tempah also won best live music coverage for Ibiza Rocks.

Manchester Orchestra picked up two prizes for video of the year and best international indie/rock video for their track Simple Math.

Depeche Mode won best alternative video for a remix of their hit, Personal Jesus.

Wiley won best UK urban video with Numbers in Action, while Jay-Z and Kanye West picked up the international equivalent for Otis, directed by Spike Jonze.

Jonze was also behind the best alternative international video - Arcade Fire's The Suburbs.

Duran Duran presented the icon award to Jonas Akerlund, who has directed videos such as Music and Ray of Light by Madonna, Lady Gaga's Paparazzi and Telephone, also featuring Beyonce.

David Knight, director of the awards, said there has been "a resurgence of the medium as a creative force".

"Great creative achievements by individuals, usually working on very challenging budgets, have been rewarded at the MVAs tonight," he added.
