Game Of Thrones star Stephen Dillane has won an International Emmy for another one of his roles - playing a detective in cross channel drama The Tunnel.

The star, who plays Stannis Baratheon in HBO's fantasy drama filmed in Northern Ireland, won the best actor award for his performance as a British cop who joins forces with his French counterpart in the whodunnit inspired by Scandinavian show The Bridge.

The other UK winners were Channel 4's conspiracy thriller Utopia - soon to be remade for US audiences by Gone Girl film-maker David Fincher - and Channel 4's Educating Yorkshire. The documentary, set in a school in Dewsbury, won the award for non-scripted entertainment.
