The number of people doing the Thriller dance totalled 1,227
A new world record for dancing zombies has been set in Nottingham.
The official count put the number of people performing Michael Jackson's Thriller dance at 1,227 - 199 more than the previous record.
Organisers of an annual games festival had put out an appeal for volunteers to fill the Old Market Square and provided costumes, make-up and choreography.
The dancing began at 1700 BST but it took officials from Guinness half-an-hour to verify the result.
The old record had been set in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, US, on 28 October 2007.
Margaret Robinson, who helped arrange the event, said: "It has been fantastic, we have had a huge turnout, far better than we expected, you can't move for dancing zombies.
"We are all zombies tonight, we are all undead, I am covered in blood - very happy."
In March the city also claimed the record for massed Robin Hoods when 1,119 costumed people gathered at the castle.
