Two Brighouse men claim they have broken the world land- speed record for a motorised toilet.

The toilet, ridden by Shaun Walker and designed and built by Trevor Duckworth, is reported to have reached 70.9mph at Elvington Airfield, near York.

The result now has to be ratified by Guinness World Records, which has the current record as 42.25mph, which was set in Italy in 2011.
