Singer Susan Boyle has notched up a notable double after her latest album - already number one in the UK - reached the top spot in the US as well.

It's a musical feat matched only by the Beatles and the Monkees and now the singing sensation has become the first woman to top the UK and US album charts twice in the same year.

The star says she's overwhelmed but delighted with her success, as David Sillito reports.
