The xx - Coexist

The rerelease of David Bowie's The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars came in second, with Jack White's Blunderbuss in third and Adele's 21 at four.

Jack White did better in America - where he topped the vinyl chart with his debut solo album.

Blunderbuss sold 33,000 copies and knocked Abbey Road by The Beatles off the top spot  - where it has been for the last three years

Meanwhile, a live recording is set to be released of Jack White and the Bricks recorded at a Detroit bowling alley in 1999.

It's thought the vinyl will include some Bob Dylan covers.
