Thrill-seeker Simon Berry dunked a biscuit into a cup of tea placed at the bottom of a bungee jump more than 70 metres above the ground.

The 24-year-old bungee jumping instructor from Kiveton Park, Rotherham, held a hobnob in both hands as he launched himself into thin air - with cheers erupting from the crowds below as he successfully dunked the biscuit into the cuppa.

Yorkshire Tea was Mr Berry's drink of choice - and he dunked a chocolate Hobnob because of it's 'structure and integrity. It's a solid biscuit'.

Mr Berry said: "It was amazing. I never thought I'd have a world record."

Since his successful dunk, he admitted he'd like to try out a few more record attempts soon.

He said: "We have got a few things in the offing - perhaps next will be the highest bungee jump from a hot air balloon."
