The official video for the Hillsborough charity single 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' featuring Paul McCartney has been revealed - scroll down to watch it.

The video sees the all-star cast of the Justice Collective recording their cover, which is expected to challenge for the Christmas Number One spot this year. Robbie Williams, Shane Macgowan, Gerry Marsden, Melanie C and Paloma Faith all appear, alongside former Liverpool footballers Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen.

Other musicians who feature in the video include Jon McClure, Dave McCabe of The Zutons, Ren Harvieu, John Power, Paul Heaton, Holly Johnson, Rebecca Ferguson and Eliza Doolittle. The charity single will raise finds for the 96 Liverpool football fans who died in a crush at the Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield during the FA Cup semi final in 1989.

Songwriter Guy Chambers has produced the track and previously spoke about his motivation for recording the song. "I am deeply honoured to be asked to produce this record for the 96," he said. "If we can help to raise money to support the families' legal battle so that they finally get their time in court then our job will be done."
