GIRL group All Angels - which features Suffolk schoolgirl Laura Wright - lost out to Sir Paul McCartney at last night's Classical Brit Awards.

Laura, 16, from Framsden, and the rest of the girls - Melanie Nakhla, Charlotte Ritchie and Daisy Chute - were nominated for Album of the Year.

But former Beatle Sir Paul scooped the top award thanks to Ecce Cor Meum (Behold My Heart), a work inspired by his love for late wife Linda.

All Angels arrived for the ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall in a horse-drawn carriage rather than a limousine.
