Indian student Joyte Amge who measures just a little over two feet has been confirmed as the world's shortest living woman by Guinness World Records.

Ms Amge was given the title on Friday as she celebrated her 18th birthday in the city of Nagpur.

In 2009, she was named the world's shortest teenager at 61.95cm.

Ms Amge said it was "wonderful" to celebrate her 18th birthday with a new world record.
