An organist's tribute to singer David Bowie, described as "utterly breathtaking", has been watched more than two million times.

St Albans Cathedral put organ scholar Nicholas Freestone's version of Bowie's Life on Mars on Facebook after the singer's death was announced on Monday.

More than 2.6 million people have viewed the video and thousands have commented.

Mr Freestone, 24, from Ipswich, said he was "humbled" by the reaction.
