Vera Lynn is in the top 20, pushing out U2Add an Image

More than 60 years after she was labelled the Forces Sweetheart and kept the nation’s spirits up with her timeless records during World War Two, Dame Vera Lynn has returned to the top 20.

Beating off competition from rockers U2, the Stone Roses and Eminem, the 92-year-old has stormed into the charts with her album We’ll Meet Again – The Very Best of Vera Lynn.
