A bid to break the Guinness world record for the largest number of people robotic dancing has failed but organisers are determined to try again.

University of Surrey students had set out to beat the current record of 429 people, which was set at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge ground on 17 May 2010.

Spokesman Daniel Speller said about 20 people turned up but organisers would try again on a date to be set.

He said organisers had to liaise with Guinness World Records to reschedule.
