Blunt storms to top of the US chart


James Blunt has become the first UK artist to hit Number One in the US singles chart for almost a decade.

His ballad You're Beautiful entered the US chart on Wednesday at the top spot.

The former Army captain has become the first UK artist to achieve the feat since Sir Elton John triumphed in the notoriously-difficult US charts in 1997.

You're Beautiful is said to have been written after the singer, who was a double winner at this year's Brits, saw his ex-girlfriend on a train with a new man.
