Mumford and Sons have returned to the top of the Official UK Albums Chart with 'Babel'.

The London-based band, who were knocked off the top spot last weekend by Muse's 'The 2nd Law', have overtaken mid-week leader Ellie Goulding's 'Halcyon' to reclaim pole position, according to the Official Charts Company.

Goulding scores her second UK Top Five album, entering in at Number Two while Muse slide two places to Number Three. Pink's 'The Truth About Love' is at Number Four and Emeli Sandé's 'Our Version Of Events' holds firm at Number Five.

Elsewhere in the UK Album Chart, All Time Low score their highest UK chart placing with their fifth studio album 'Don't Panic' entering at Number Nine. Australian rockers Tame Impala are at Number 14 with their second album, 'Lonerism', and Kiss are at Number 21 with their 20th studio album, 'Monster'.

Meanwhile, in the Official UK Singles Chart, Swedish House Mafia have beaten Adele to the Number One spot.

The '21' singer's official theme tune for the forthcoming new James Bond film, Skyfall, claimed the Number Four spot last week after shifting a staggering 48,000 copies in just 48 hours, and was strongly tipped to be this week's best-seller.

But, despite selling 176,00 copies, the singer was beaten to the top by the Swedish DJs’ 'Don't You Worry Child' by 43,000 units, securing the trio's first ever UK Number One.

Last week's Number One, Rihanna's 'Diamonds', has fallen to Number Four, with Psy's 'Gangnam Style' just ahead at Number Three. 'Anything Could Happen' by Ellie Goulding completes the Top Five.
