Musical hit Matilda was the toast of this year's Laurence Olivier Awards, winning seven prizes at a ceremony held at the Royal Opera House in London.

They included one for best actress in a musical, presented jointly to the four child stars who share the title role.

Songwriter Tim Minchin paid tribute to "the little twerps" as he collected the production's best new musical prize.

Matilda's record-breaking tally topped that of Nicholas Nickleby - another RSC show - which won six awards in 1980.
