A teenager who has raised more than £3m for charity has broken a world record.

Stephen Sutton from Staffordshire was diagnosed with bowel cancer aged 15 and started raising funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

He has written a bucket list - featuring things he wants to accomplish in his lifetime - which includes getting in the Guinness Book of World Records.

His record was getting the most people to make a "heart-shaped hand gesture".

Stephen himself attended the event and the organisers said he was "so excited" to have achieved the record.
