Hunstanton man's tandem ride finally called world record




A man from Hunstanton has officially been awarded the Guinness World Record for cycling circumnavigation of the world by tandem.

John Whybrow completed his epic journey in March, 2017, but he and co-rider George Agate have had to wait until now for the official confirmation that it has been accepted as a record.
