Coldplay

Brit band Coldplay is the preferred music choice to send us off to sleep at night, a survey has found.

The clean cut rock band fronted by Chris Martin topped a poll of artists lulling Britons into slumber.

The dulcet tones of James Blunt, Snow Patrol, Take That and Norah Jones completed the "kip parade" top five according to a study undertaken by Travelodge. [UK press association]
