Oasis have shot straight to the top of the album chart with their seventh studio collection, Dig Out Your Soul.

It is the group's first album since 2005's Don't Believe The Truth, and continues an unbroken run of number one albums since 1994's Definitely Maybe.

Guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher recently returned to the stage after being injured by a stage invader at a concert in Canada.

Pink's So What remains the number one single for a third week.

The Kings of Leon are at number two in the singles chart with Sex on Fire, and in the album chart with Only By The Night.

Will Young's album Let It Goes falls one place to number three, while Rihanna's Good Girl Gone Bad - first released in June 2007 - rises one place to number four.

James Morrison's Songs For You, Truths For Me falls two places to number five.

Tell Tale Signs - an album of alternative takes from Bob Dylan's past recording sessions - is the second highest new entry, at number nine.

The highest new entry in the singles chart is Kaiser Chiefs' Never Miss A Beat, at number five.
