Luke Vella attempts to set new deadlift world record
A fitness instructor from Bath is waiting to hear if he has set a new world record for deadlifting.
The current record stands at 5,520kg.
Luke Vella, 29, hoped to beat it with a lift of 5,600kg.
To be successful he had 60 seconds to lift 126kg off the ground 44 times.
Mr Vella hopes to raise £5,000 for The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity.
A film of his record attempt has been sent to Guinness World Records to be verified.
