Louis Tomlinson is among the stars who have contributed to the Grenfell Tower single.

Doncaster's Louis Tomlinson joined the likes of Stormzy, Robbie Williams, Rita Ora and many more for a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's classic Bridge Over Troubled Water - and the single was released this morning.

The song also features Craig David and Skepta and was organised by Simon Cowell who lives in the same borough as Grenfell Tower where at least 79 people are missing presumed dead following the tower block inferno last week.

The song opens with a verse by Stormzy, who says: "I don't know where to begin / So I'll start by saying I refuse to forget you.
