UK regains 'extreme' ironing record


UK divers have broken the world record for the most number of divers ironing underwater.

128 British scuba divers braved the freezing temperatures to take the record, from Australia, for the most number of people ironing underwater, at a depth between 15 and 20 metres, according to organisers.

Although there is fierce rivalry between England and Australia in this bizarre 'sporting' event, the aim was to raise money for charity.
