Verve victorious in album chart

Reunited rock band The Verve have shot straight to the top of the album charts with their first release in more than ten years.

Their album, Forth, was recorded when the band reformed last year following a split at the height of their success. It knocked Irish three-piece The Script off the number one spot, The Official Charts Company said.

Despite their success in the album chart, The Verve's single, Love Is Noise, fell two places from seven to nine.
