Vinyl records have made a big comeback in Britain, with sales hitting a 25-year high in 2016, new figures from the UK music industry reveal.

Vinyl records went out of use with the development of CDs and online streaming. But many Britons say that they are returning to vinyl because they cannot touch a streamed record or put it on their shelf.
