Biffy Clyro have been crowned best British act at the annual Kerrang! music awards.

The Scottish rock band defeated Neck Deep, Loathe, Venom Prison and Franker Carter And The Rattlesnakes in the hotly-contested category at the ceremony held at the Shoreditch Town Hall on Thursday.

Formed in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire, the group is composed of Simon Neil, James Johnston and Ben Johnston – and together they have released nine studio albums, the latest of which, The Myth Of The Happily Ever After, was released in October last year.

While American rock band Fall Out Boy were presented with the inspiration award for more than 20 years in the industry and seven studio albums – making it their sixth Kerrang! award in total.

Twenty One Pilots were presented with best live act while Poppy beat Eurovision 2021 winners Maneskin to take home best international act.
