Belfast's Meccano bridge world record bid

Engineering students in Belfast are hoping to set a new world record by building a 100ft footbridge made entirely from Meccano.

The bridge across Belfast's Clarendon Dock was designed and built by a group of third year civil engineering students from Queen's University and school children.

It will be unveiled on Saturday, when the team will learn if they have been successful in their world record attempt.

The public will also be invited to test the bridge by walking across it.
