Linkin Park have knocked pop-squirt Justin Bieber off the UK Album Chart top spot.

The band held off stiff competition from Maroon 5's 'Overexposed' to take the UK Album Chart Number One and dethroned Bieber, who dropped for Number 4 with 'Believe', according to the Official Charts Company.

'Living Things' is Linkin Park’s fifth studio album and today gives the Los Angeles-based band their sixth Top 10 album and third UK Number One. They out-sold 'Overexposed' by 3,000 copies, with Maroon 5 having to settle for Number Two.

Ed Sheeran's '+' jumped four places to return to the Top 5 at Number Three, while Emeli Sande's 'Over Version Of Events' dropped one to Number Five.

Elsewhere in the UK Albums Chart, Flo Rida is new in at Number 8 with 'Wild Ones' and Jay-Z and Kanye West's 'Watch The Throne' collaboration has jumped thirteen places to re-enter the Top 10 at Number 7, with their Radio 1's Hackney Weekend show being the likely cause for the increase in sales.

Meanwhile, The Stone Roses are this week's highest climbers as their 'Very Best Of' compilation jumps an incredible seventeen places to Number 21, as their Heaton Park shows create a renewed interest in the legendary Manchester band.

In the UK Singles Charts, Will.I.Am sold over 100,000 copies of his new track 'This Is Love' to secure his first solo number one single.

'This Is Love' is co-produced by Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello, and is the follow-up to Will.I.Am's previously highest-charting Number 3 solo hit 'T.H.E (The Hardest Ever)' featuring Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez, which was released earlier this year. Both tracks are taken from his upcoming solo record '#willpower'.

Maroon 5's 'Payphone' drops one place to Number Two, while Chris Brown's 'Don't Wake Me Up' is new in at Number Three. Flo Rida's 'Whistle' and Cheryl's 'Call My Name' are at Number Four and Five respectively.
