Tony Wilson posthumously won the Q magazine "Hero" award last night.

Hooky, presenting the award, said: "This is very difficult for me. He always said to me, when you want me I won't be there but when you need me I will be. I truly believe that".

Oliver and Isobel Wilson collected the award, saying: "We miss him and it's really nice to know other people do too."

Other Q award categories - either voted on by readers or 'decided by the magazine staff' - included: "Q Legend"; "Q Inspiration"; "Q Merit"; "Q Idol" and "Q Icon".

The "Q Lifetime Achievement" award was won by Electronic axe man Johnny Marr.
