Classical cellist breaks into top of the pops

Sheku Kanneh-Mason has burst into the UK pop charts at number 18 with his debut album, Inspiration.

The album was recorded in his hometown Nottingham, and in Birmingham with the CBSO and music director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla.

It is, needless to say, #1 in the classical charts.

It is also the fastest selling release by any UK debut artist this year.
