The man who records all his sneezes

Idly daydreaming one day in 2007, Peter Fletcher wondered how many times he might sneeze in his life.

So he started counting, and now every time he sneezes he notes the time and date, where he is, and what he is doing at the time.

His log has helped him discover much about his own life, such as how much time he spent in front of his computer, compared to how little work he gets done.

His sneeze count, currently just over 4,000, has a healthy online following as people log in to read about his latest sternutation.

BBC News went along to meet him.
