Flautist Sir James Galway wins lifetime award

Classical flautist Sir James Galway has been honoured with a lifetime achievement prize at the Gramophone Awards in London.

The 74-year-old virtuoso, nicknamed "the man with the golden flute", was hailed as "a true classical music superstar" as he collected his award.

Sir James has sold millions of records during his 50-year career and scored a top three hit in 1978.

Conductor Sir Neville Marriner was also given a special honorary award.

The outstanding achievement prize was created especially for the 90-year-old, who recently became the oldest conductor to appear at the BBC Proms.
