French artist Laure Prouvost has won this year's Turner Prize for her video installation set in a mocked up tea party.

The video installation - called Wantee - by the London-based artist was lauded by judges as outstanding and moving.

The award, which earns the winner £25,000, was given by young Irish actress Saoirse Ronan, who received Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe Award nominations for her role in the 2007 film Atonement.

The world famous exhibition was held in the first ever UK City of Culture, Londonderry, Northern Ireland, and is the first time it has been staged outside of England.
