Bubble wrap popping sets new record

Students at a high school in the US state of New Jersey successfully entered the Guinness World Record books on Monday.

366 students filled the gymnasium of Hawthorne High School to set the record for the most people popping bubble wrap at one time.

Bubble wrap was invented in Hawthorne, NJ in 1960 by inventors Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding.

The head of Hawthorn High School Barry Cohen said the record attempt was to honour the town's famous invention, but also to raise money for the Sandy Hook Elementary School fund in Connecticut.
