World record attempt 40,000-piece Diamond Jubilee jigsaw collapses

A 40,000-piece jigsaw created for a world record attempt has collapsed, leaving the craftsman who made it the task of putting it back together.

Dave Evans, from Weymouth, spent 35 days hand-cutting the 19ft 6in by 8ft (6m by 2.5m) jigsaw, featuring 33 images of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

He completed it at Brewers Quay on Wednesday but when he returned on Thursday it had moved slightly. As he was making adjustments, he said he became distracted and it collapsed.

The jigsaw is due to go on display at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk in May before it is auctioned to raise money for Help for Heroes.
