A 26-year-old teacher from Wigan has made it to number 3 in the iTunes charts a year after he died from cancer.

Jimmy Higham recorded a version of Stevie Wonder's 'Isn't She Lovely' while working at a school in Berkshire three years ago.

He was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and died just before Christmas last year.

The single has been released to raise money in his memory.

Proceeds will go towards bursaries for students from the North West to study at Wellington College, where Jimmy taught.
