Meet the NHS choir who beat Bieber to Christmas number one

A choir of nurses, doctors and other NHS staff have beaten Justin Bieber and X Factor winner Louisa Johnson to the UK's Christmas number one spot.

The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir's song A Bridge Over You topped the chart ahead of Bieber's Love Yourself.

The choir overtook Bieber after the pop star urged his 72 million Twitter followers to buy the charity single.

The BBC's James Longman met the singers behind the single.
