A bid to create a new world record and have the biggest number of people dressed up as daleks in one location has taken place in Manchester.

The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester brought together 67 home-made Daleks on Sunday afternoon.

Their original creator, Raymond Cusick, who was there to judge the world record attempt said the initial design 40 years ago was very basic.

The museum is currently featuring an exhibition on Dr Who and the Daleks.

An official decision is yet to be announced as to whether the daleks succeeded in the world record bid.
