Bra chain record

Women in Cyprus have set a new record by forming the longest chain of bras in the world, organisers say.

The stunt was part of a campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer and encourage more regular check-ups.

Dutch, British and Cypriot organisers formed a 111km (70 miles)-long chain, eclipsing a 60km record which was held by Singapore.

The chain consisted of nearly 115,00 bras, with contributions from as far afield as Alaska.

It took volunteers almost a year to collect the underwear, and over eight hours to clip them together, eventually forming over 200 lines of bras up and down the length of Paphos pier.
