All fall down

Palantine Beds, in Newcastle, are eagerly awaiting confirmation of a new Guinness World Record for human mattress dominoes after they toppled 400 mattresses to beat the current record of 380 set two weeks ago by a team in America.

Prior to this, the record was held by a Chinese team with 280.

The company spent months planning the attempt, having to revise their plans and work overtime to produce more mattresses when the Americans upped the record a fortnight ago.
