Liam Gallagher scored the top-selling single on vinyl last year, the Official Charts Company said.

All You're Dreaming Of, the former Oasis singer's festive track released in aid of Action For Children, beat Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart to the honour.

It was revealed by the Official Charts Company as it expanded its Number 1 Awards, saying it wanted to provide more exposure to diverse talent on the specialist charts.

Gallagher (48) posed with his award while wearing a crash helmet emblazoned with "PEACE".

"Thanks to everyone for making All You're Dreaming Of the UK's top-selling vinyl single of the year, number one on the Official Vinyl Chart 2020," he said.

Fastest

Punk band Idles had the best-selling album in independent record shops with their effort Ultra Mono, which went to number one in the charts on its release in October.

It was also the fastest-selling vinyl release of the year.

Idles guitarist Mark Bowen said it is "really important" to support record stores.

"If you're going to buy a record, go out and support independent local busi- nesses, because they need it as much as possible," he said.

"Thanks to the fans, shout out to independent record stores."
