Tim Storms has won the Decca Records first prize in the search for the human being capable of singing the lowest note.

Speaking to the Today programme that the note that won him the competition is the fifth note from the bottom of the piano.

He said he does not train his voice in any particular way but just tries to "keep [it] in shape".

Voice coach Elspeth Morrison explains that, when people can go that low, "you have to be born with it... your vocal cords have got to be a very particular shape."
