SHEFFIELD school pupils were among those who broke a Guinness World Record for the most people singing and doing sign language simultaneously.

Steve Powell, chief executive of SignHealth, the healthcare charity for deaf people, said: “We are delighted to have broken the world record for the second year running and we are going to try and beat it again next year.
