The charity single, recorded by Keane’s Girls, was released in memory of the 12-year-old who died when a modesty wall in the PE block at Edinburgh’s Liberton High School collapsed on April 1.

The song, which was written shortly after her death by a group of pupils with support from the school chaplaincy, pays tribute to the schoolgirl.

It was made available to download from Monday costing 99p, with all money raised from the sale of the single going towards a memorial garden at the school.

The three-minute track was at number 72 this morning on the iTunes download chart.
