UK Music Video Awards 2018: All the winners on the night

On Thursday night we headed down to Camden’s Roundhouse for the UK Music Video Awards to join some of the best talents in the video industry and see them recognised for their incredible work. Hosted by Adam Buxton who was on hand with plenty of jokes throughout the night the big winners were Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, Florence + The Machine and Sevdaliza.  We absolutely loved seeing Carrie Sutton become the first female winner of the Outstanding Achievement Award.
