Queen have become the first act to sell six million copies of an individual album.

The band’s first Greatest Hits collection has been Britain’s highest-selling album for several years. But the Official Charts Company said one in three British families now owned a copy of the 1981 compilation after surpassing the six million figure.

The album leads the all-time album chart by some 900,000 copies, ahead of Abba’s 1992 greatest hits collection Gold.

The Official Charts Company said the album - which also features Another One Bites The Dust, Bicycle Race and Fat Bottomed Girls - regularly sells several thousand copies per week, particularly around Christmas.
