SCOTTISH rockers Biffy Clyro have scored their first No1 album with Opposites, the Official Charts Company revealed.

The band reached No2 and No3 respectively with their two previous studio albums.

Opposites sold 71,500 copies this week, which is not the biggest opening week tally for an album this year so far.

Opposites relegates Les Miserables to No2, while 35 years after its release, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours is in the top three.

Meanwhile, Bingo Players remained at No1 for a second week in the singles chart with Get Up (Rattle) – a track which failed to make the top 40 in their native Netherlands.
