A village butcher has broken the world record for the number of sausages made in one minute.

Gavin Reynolds, who owns J W Baxter Butchers in Clifton, explained: "I have been making sausages for over 30 years now and found out that there was a world record for the most amount of sausages made in one minute, from a man called Barry John Crowe in Cavan in Ireland.

"His record was 78 and I thought I could beat this, so I applied to the Guinness World Records.

"I had to fill the sausages and link them to a minimum of four inches long, and I managed to make 83 in one minute, setting a new Guinness World Record."
