Forces' sweetheart in charts again


On the eve of the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two, Dame Vera Lynn has become the oldest living artist to make it into the UK's top 20 album chart.

The former Forces' Sweetheart is now 92. Her album, We'll Meet Again - The Very Best of Vera Lynn, sold more than offerings from U2 and Eminem last week.

She told the BBC that her latest chart success came as a bit of a surprise.
