Hundreds of children in Leicestershire have formed a "walking bus" as part of a campaign to cut down on the county's school-run congestion.
More than 1,000 youngsters took part in the walk
Organisers said youngsters from six schools in Ashby-de-la-Zouch joined together in one of the UK's longest school walks on Wednesday morning.
A total of 1,346 walkers - both children and adults - completed the journey at the Bath Grounds.
The scheme aims to cut car journeys and congestion on the school run.
The pupils taking part came from Ashby Church of England, Hilltop, Willesley and Woodcote, Manor House Prep School and Ivanhoe High.
The previous record was held by Kingston-upon-Thames where 1,109 children and parents took part.
Ashby already has walking initiatives at three of its primary schools.
Cllr Nicholas Rushton of Leicestershire County Council said: "There are other ways of getting to school apart from the car.
"Walking buses are a really, really good initiative."
A "walking bus" comprises a group of children with older volunteer supervisors acting as the "driver" and "conductors", stopping at agreed pick-up points.
