Two local voices have featured on a special version of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water, released today to raise money for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

X Factor winner and Bromley boy Matt Terry joined more than 50 artists together with fellow Bromley-born singer Pixie Lott, whose uncle, Ricky Bennett, is the joint manager of Erith Town FC.

Music mogul Simon Cowell kicked off the recording process for the song days after last week’s fire, which killed at least 79 people.

Stars came together for a weekend of recording at west London’s Sarm Studios, half a mile away fromwhat remains of the tower block.

Marking a week since the fire, the track will be played across BBC radio stations from 8am and on ITV before Coronation Street.

All proceeds will go to Artists for Grenfell and will be distributed via The London Community Foundation.

Sharing the news via his official Twitter page, Mr Cowell urged the nation to buy the single and make further donations via artistsforgrenfell.com.
