The 41-year-old musician – who had long been the bookies’ favourite – triumphed with her release Let England Shake, which was inspired by conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Polly Jean Harvey beat acts such as chart-topper Adele and Brit-winning star Tinie Tempah to the £20,000 prize.

She previously won the Mercury Prize a decade ago – on the day of the September 11 attacks.

Harvey wore a full-length white dress with a white leather bodice shaped like a strait-jacket – the design of which had been inspired by her album – to attend the ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
