World Record broken on UK beach
The UK has cleaned up with a new world record for the most people to shower simultaneously at a single venue.
Despite chilly conditions, 152 girls and boys got into their bikinis and swimming trunks on Bournemouth beach on Saturday, bathing their way towards the new benchmark.
The participants narrowly beat the previous record of 145 people that was set in Chicago, Illinois in 2009.
A 6 m (19 ft 8.16 in) high shower was specially built for the record attempt, which was organised by shower gel maker Lynx
Guinness World Records adjudicator Anna Orford said: ‘The people of Bournemouth have to be applauded for getting into the spirit of the day and taking a shower together.
‘Their reward is a new record for the most people showering simultaneously at the same venue. Congratulations to everyone involved.’
Lynx now plan to take the shower on tour across European beaches and music festivals.
