Sydney Harbour Bridge climbers break two records

Climbers have broken two records at once on the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia.

More than 300 people carrying flags lined the landmark on Friday, breaking the records for both the most people on the bridge, and the most number of flags flown off it.

The former record was previously set by a group led by US TV host Oprah Winfrey in 2011.

The event, organised by Rotary International, was part of their campaign to eradicate polio.
