The world record for bell ringing was smashed in Alderney last night when 12 ringers rang at St Anne’s Church for more than 16 hours.

The group, who came from all over the UK, rang for two hours more than the previous record.

A crowd of around 100 people gathered in the Church to watch them achieve their record.

After not taking their hands off the ropes for 16 hours and 7 minutes, they finished at around 10.45pm last night.
