DONCASTER pop star Louis Tomlinson has plenty to celebrate again - after his group One Direction picked up another Brit Award.

The group was named as winners of the Global Success award at the awards ceremony last night at London’s O2 Arena, in recognition of overseas sales of over £9 million.

The former Hayfield School pupil and One Direction colleagues also performed new single One Way Or Another on a giant pinball machine stage.

Delighted Louis, aged 21, said: “This is absolutely mind-blowing. We have to start off by thanking our fans. They have just been unbelievable and we obviously wouldn’t be here today without them.”
