1 Lawnmower breaks land speed record in Pendine Sands

A British lawnmower has cut the world land speed record by reaching a new top speed of more than 86mph.

Rider Don Wales took the petrol driven mower into the record books at Pendine Sands in Carmarthenshire.

The previous lawnmower land speed record was 80.792mph (130.022km/h) set in America - Mr Wales was recorded as reaching 86.069mph.

His team are now due to return to the same spot on Sunday in a bid to break the 100mph barrier.

Those making a bid for the record must drive over a measured mile in one direction and return within an hour.
