Space hopping into the record books

Hundreds of people jumped on space hoppers in Leeds in an attempt to create the record for the largest number of people bouncing 100m (328ft).

More than 700 people took part in Bounce for Leeds at Roundhay Park on Saturday.

The event was organised by Yorkshire Cancer Research, who already hold the record for the largest space hopper race in the world.

The money raised will go towards research and treatment projects.

Rachel Speight from Yorkshire Cancer Research said the aim was to break their own record and raise over £30,000.

She added that event organisers believe they had succeeded in their attempt.
