Jimmy Page will receive a one-off NME Rock 'N' Roll Soul Award, it has been revealed.

The Led Zeppelin guitarist will be honoured with the accolade at the 2015 NME Awards on Wednesday (February 18).

The magazine's editor Mike Williams said: "This special, one-off award has been created to reflect one of the most important and iconic figures to have ever picked up an instrument.

"There is nobody in popular culture quite like Jimmy Page, and we are honoured to be giving him the Rock'N'Roll Soul Award at this year's ceremony."
