Veteran rockers The Eagles have topped the UK album chart for the first time.

No band has ever taken longer to reach number one, with a 33-year gap between their debut UK hit, On the Border, and this release, Long Road Out of Eden.

The success of the US group's first full studio album since The Long Run in 1979 means Britney Spears has had to settle for second place with Blackout.

Leona Lewis remains number one in the singles countdown, selling more than the rest of the top five put together.

Her song Bleeding Love is in first place for a second week, with 158,370 sales, followed by Take That's Rule the World.

Westlife have gone in at number three with Home. Timbaland's track Apologize climbs three places to four and Valerie by Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse remains at five.

Elsewhere in the singles chart, Ibiza floorfiller Heater by Samim - which features a sample of an accordion - jumps from 29 to 12.

Elvis Presley scores a re-entry at 15 with Viva Las Vegas, the latest of his hits to be re-released in the UK.

And Swedish star Robyn, whose last single went to number one, enters the top 40 at 17 with Handle Me.

There is a high new entry - at number four - for Raising Sand, the collaboration between Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant and singer-songwriter Alison Krauss.

Whitney Houston's The Ultimate Collection went in at five.

Irish country stars Daniel O'Donnell and Mary Duff are new at six with their collection of duets, Together Again.

And new albums by Queen and the Backstreet Boys enter at 20 and 21 respectively.
