Artist breaks world record
An artist has broken a world record by creating a huge traditional Indian picture made of lentils, rice, pasta and fruit.

Ranvir Kaur created the 163.5-square-metre Rangoli pattern on Nottingham's Old Market Square and has entered the Guinness Book of Records.

Rangoli is a traditional art form among Indian women, often created on the floor in front of homes.

Kaur said afterwards: "Everyone was very nice actually - helping out, passing things, cutting oranges and I think that actually made it happen."
