Iron Maiden are to receive the O2 Silver Clef award for their "outstanding contribution" to UK music.

The metal elders were unveiled as this year's winners during an exclusive event by music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins in The Club at London's Cafe Royal. The event marked 40 years of the charity.

Previous winners include The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Genesis and Queen.

"Nordoff Robbins is an exceptional charity and their dedication to changing people's lives through music therapy is something we all very much support," said the band in a statement.

"We're extremely proud to receive the O2 Silver Clef Award and be part of the 40th anniversary event celebrating this wonderful achievement."

More awards will be given at the O2 Silver Clef Lunch on July 3 at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.
