Divers do ironing underwater

Over 100 divers plunged into chilly waters in a flooded quarry in Gloucestershire in England to do a spot of underwater ironing.

The group managed to break the world record, which was previously held by Australia, for the most number of people ironing underwater at the same time.

They managed to get 86 divers ironing within 10 minutes, with 128 divers taking part in total.

The divers' record-breaking attempt was also to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
