Bastille have scored their first Official UK Number One Album with 'Bad Blood'.

The indie-rock band were neck and neck with Stereophonics' 'Graffiti On The Train' in the midweek chart update, but a late surge in sales pulled them away from the Welsh rockers, who finished at Number Three, to top the charts with their debut album, reports the Official Charts Company.

The London-based group also held off Emeli Sandé's 'Our Version Of Events', which had to settle for Number Two despite an increase in sales leading up to Mother's Day. Bruno Mars’ 'Unorthodox Jukebox' is at Number Four and Dido's comeback album, 'Girl Who Got Away', is at Number Five.

Elsewhere in the Official UK Album Chart, Laura Mvula, who is currently on tour with Jessie Ware, has entered the Top 10 with her debut album 'Sing To The Moon' at Number Nine, while Jimi Hendrix's 'People, Hell And Angels' is at Number 39.

In the Official UK Singles Chart, Justin Timberlake holds on for a second week at Number One with 'Mirrors'. Bruno Mars' 'When I Was Your Man' is at Number Two and Bastille are at Number Three with 'Pompeii'. Pink's collaboration with Fun's Nate Ruess, 'Just Give Me A Reason', is up six places to Number Four. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' 'Thrift Shop' completes this week's Top Five.

Meanwhile, Stereophonics bag their 25th Top 40 single with 'Indian Summer' climbing 11 places to Number 30. Fleetwood Mac's 'Everywhere', which features in the Shetland pony-dancing advert for 3, is this week's highest climber (15).
