  Ear hair is world's longest
Updated 06 February 2002, 17.54
B D Tyagi of Bhopal in India with his long ear hair
As world records go, it's pretty gross, but a man has had his ear hair officially recognised as the world's longest!

The hair growing from the middle of his ears measures an astonishing 10.2cm at its longest point, which is probably long enough for small pony tails.

Proud record holder

Guinness World Records says B D Tyagi of Bhopal in India has definitely got the record and have sent him an official certificate.

He's now the proud owner of the Longest Ear Hair record category.

The story was apparently investigated in 2001 and approved but has only just been confirmed.
