The White Stripes have chalked up their second UK number one album after Icky Thump when straight to the top spot on its first week of release.

The Detroit duo's place at number one comes at the expense of Collection by supergroup Traveling Wilburys, while Enrique Iglesias' latest effort Insomniac debuts at number three.

In the singles standings Rihanna and Jay-Z are riding high at the top of the charts for the sixth week running.
