Motorhead could hit the top of the singles chart following the shock death of frontman Lemmy.

The band's song Ace Of Spades has moved up 94 places into the ninth spot midweek in the singles charts.

Lemmy, real name Ian Kilmister, died just two days after being diagnosed with an "extremely aggressive cancer".

He had received the diagnosis on Boxing Day, just days after he had celebrated his 70th birthday.

The track was first released in 1980 and hit number 15 on the charts on its release. Canadian pop star Justin Bieber is still dominating the top five in the singles chart, with three of his songs featuring in positions number one, two and four respectively.
