Daft Punk have secured a second consecutive week at the top of the Official UK Album Chart with Random Access Memories.

The French duo managed to hold off competition from Rod Stewart who has retained his second place with Time while new entry Laura Marling scored her highest charting album to date with Once I Was An Eagle reaching number three, according to the Official Charts Company.

Passenger's All The Little Lights and Rudimental's Home make up the rest of the top five while girl group Stooshe entered the charts at number eight.

Daft Punk's Random Access Memories became the fastest-selling LP of 2013 so far last week after selling 165,000 copies in the first seven days and going on to shift 53,000 units the week after.

The electronic group's fourth studio album represented their first full-length record since 2005 when they released Human After All, which was also nominated for a Grammy for Best Electronic/Dance Album.
