Cornwall fairies attempt to break record

Hundreds of fairies gathered at Mount Edgcumbe House in Cornwall in an attempt to break the world record for the largest ever gathering of fairies in one place.

The previous record stood at 871 and rules stated that those taking part must be wear wings, a tutu and should carry a wand.

Organiser Karen Kay said she had been very impressed by the effort people had made.

Sadly it just was not enough and they missed out on the record by about 100 fairies.
