Biffy Clyro have scored the second UK number one album of their career with their seventh release Ellipsis.

The album sold a combined total of 37,000 copies - after sales and streaming data were added together.

The Scottish rock band last hit the top of the album chart with Opposites, released in 2013.

Two of this year's Glastonbury headliners - Adele and Coldplay - remained in this week's top five, at numbers two and four respectively.

Drake's album Views jumped into the top five to hit number three, while ELO's All Over The World held its position at number five.

This week's new entries included Wildflower by The Avalanches at number 10 - the band's first album since their 2000 debut.

Elsewhere, Shura landed at number 13 with her debut album Nothing's Real, ahead of Aphex Twin's Cheetah which debuted at number 14.

On the singles chart, Drake's One Dance achieved its 14th week at number one.

The song is catching up with Bryan Adams's Everything I Do (I Do It For You) - which holds the record for the longest consecutive reign at number one, having spent 16 weeks at the summit in 1991.
