Michael Jackson Dominates UK Record Sales Since Death Photo:

Michael Jackson has dominated record sales in the UK since his death, selling more records than any other artist.

Jackson, who died a year ago today (June 25), sold a total of 4.31million records over the past 12 months.

'Man In The Mirror' was the biggest-selling single, while the career-spanning retrospective 'The Essential' was the best-selling album.

Martin Talbot, managing director of the Official Charts Company, said: "The UK was one of Michael Jackson's favourite countries in the world and he had a massive fanbase here, as these figures clearly demonstrate.”

Earlier this week it was estimated that Jackson's estate had generated more than $1billion since his death.
