Artists for Grenfell are holding firm at the top of the Official Singles Chart Update

Artists for Grenfell's reworking of Bridge Over Troubled Water is on course for a second week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.

In today's Official Chart Update, the charity record, in aid of the victims and families of those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire, is over 13,000 downloads and streaming equivalent sales ahead of the closest competition.
