Fans paying tribute to the late musician Prince have pushed his albums to the top of the charts.

His music is currently holding every position in the Top 5 of the official album chart.

The Very Best Of compilation is at number one and if it remains there on Friday, it will become Prince's sixth number one album in the UK.

It is followed in the Top 5 by Ultimate, Purple Rain, The Hits / The B-Sides, and Sign O' The Times.

The late musician's fans have also ensured that Prince's hit song "Purple Rain" takes second place on the official singles chart.

"When Doves Cry" has also re-entered the charts at number six, followed by "Kiss" at 11, "Raspberry Beret" at 15, "1999" at 17 and "Little Red Corvette" at 26.

The musician was found collapsed in a lift by staff members last Thursday after last being seen alive 12 hours earlier.

His brother-in-law Maurice Phillips has claimed the singer worked for six days non-stop before his death.

Speaking after a private family service at the estate, Mr Phillips said: "He worked 154 hours straight. I was with him just last weekend. He was a good brother-in-law."

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding Prince's death after authorities said they had "no reason to believe" he committed suicide.

Authorities added that there were "no obvious signs of trauma" on his body.
