A local charity is set to benefit after the NHS Choir single beat Justin Bieber to the Christmas Number One.

The Northern Ireland Association for Mental Health is one of the charities that will get cash from the profits from the record.

The Lewisham and Greenwich choir's charity single, A Bridge Over You, claimed the top spot in the closest chart battle since 2009 when Rage Against The Machine beat X Factor star Joe McElderry.

The choir said: "We are absolutely overwhelmed and couldn't be any happier! It's a brilliant celebration for the NHS across the country so well done and thank you everyone for downloading and streaming. A massive cheer for the NHS, thank you!"
