The artist Helen Marten has won this year's Turner Prize.

The 31-year-old's winning installation includes cotton buds, shoe soles, eggs and snakeskin.

She has taken the €30,000 prize for her work at the Tate Britain in London.

BBC reports that judges said Marten's art "is outstanding for its extraordinary range of materials and form".
