One Direction have stormed to the top of the UK Album Chart with their third studio album Midnight Memories.
The LP becomes the fastest-selling artist album of 2013 in the UK, as well as the fastest-selling album of the boyband's career to date.
According to the Official Charts Company, Midnight Memories has sold more than 237,000 copies during the last seven days, beating the first week tallies of 2011's Up All Night (139,000) and 2012 follow-up Take Me Home (155,000).
One Direction break the 2013 record previously set by Daft Punk in May. The French duo's comeback album Random Access Memories topped the charts with sales of 165,000 in its first seven days.
Official Charts Company chief executive Martin Talbot said: "It is a fantastic first week for One Direction, whose album is not just the fastest seller of the year - but is also the first artist title to sell more than 200,000 copies in a week since Michael Buble's Christmas album in December 2011.
