A Cumbrian town has made history for the second time in just a few weeks.

Wigton's Innovia plant launched the country's first plastic bank note last month and to celebrate the community has now broken a world record.

The town now holds the record for the world's largest human pound symbol with more than 2,000 people turning out.

Schoolchildren, staff from Innovia and members of the public filled out the Showfields play area today to break the record. It previously stood at 800.

It was organised by the Wigton-based North Allerdale Development Trust.
