Q Awards Leave Coldplay Empty-Handed

Coldplay have missed out on all four of the awards they were nominated for at this year's Q Awards.
Instead it was Radiohead who beat them to the title of best act in the world.
Coldplay were also up for best single (Clocks), best video (The Scientist) and best live performers.
But Christina Aguilera walked away with the best single award for Dirrty, Electric Six won best video for Gay Bar and Robbie Williams' sell-out Knebworth gigs earned him the best live act.
Coldplay who recently picked up three prizes at the MTV video music awards and have also scooped two grammys stayed away from the awards, voted by Q magazine readers.
Blur won best album for Think Tank, while The Thrills picked up the best new act award and Muse won the award for innovation.
The awards also honoured some veteran bands.
The Cure won the inspiration award, which recognises an act that has inspired a new generation of musicians and songwriters.
Dexy's Midnight Runners won the songwriter award, US rockers Jane's Addiction won the icon award, and Duran Duran picked up the prize for lifetime achievement - just as they did at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York in August.
