Mattress toppling record 'beaten' in Newcastle

A new world record for human mattress dominoes has been set in Newcastle, organisers have claimed.

Four hundred mattresses were toppled in under four minutes on Saturday morning. The previous record of 380 was set in New York City two weeks ago.

The event at a warehouse in Newburn was organised by Palatine Beds and involved a line of volunteers falling back on mattresses like dominoes.

The toppling is still to be verified by Guinness World Records.

The event was recorded and the video will be sent on to see if a new world record will be confirmed.
