  Dog has longest ears in the world
Updated 24 September 2003, 18.21
Mr Jeffries has the longest dog ears in the world
A basset hound has broken the record for the longest ears in the dog world.

The dog - called Mr Jeffries - had ears measured at 29.2cm in November 2002.

His grandad used to hold the record, but when he died Mr Jeffries took over.

His ears are so valuable that his owner has insured them against damage for 30,000.

Food dip

Owner Phil Jeffries says the ears are so long that he often stands on them, trips over them or drags them in his food by accident.

The record is among loads of new ones that will published in the new Guiness Book of World Records, which is published on Thursday.
