You’ll Never Walk Alone, the Liverpool anthem, has topped the iTunes download charts after a campaign by supporters following the Hillsborough revelations this week.
The Gerry and the Pacemakers song, synonymous with the Kop at Anfield re-entered the chart this week following an appeal by supporters and moved from number 22 to 2 in the space of four hours before reaching the top spot this morning.
Liverpool Walton MP Steve Rotheram, who helped to kick-start the campaign, tweeted “People have asked what they can do now. If you download You’ll Never Walk Alone, it will send a message to the rest of the country.”
The campaigners now hope to see the song enter the UK singles charts.
