Piper Rikki Evans' hopes of claiming new world record

Rikki Evans talks about his marathon 24-hour piping session which he hopes has set a Guinness World Record for playing the bagpipes.

The Portlethen Pipe Band member was in Glasgow for the Piping Live festival when he set himself the challenge.

Mr Evans started playing the bagpipes at 11:00 on Wednesday morning and stopped playing over 24 hours later on Thursday afternoon.

Under Guinness rules he was allowed to take a 10-minute break every two hours. He is awaiting confirmation that it is a new record.
