Long traffic queue is a record winner

CAR enthusiasts from around the Portsmouth area have joined in a successful attempt to set a new record for the longest line of toy cars.

Volunteers took ten hours to lay a line of 24,189 toy cars which snaked a staggering 1.91km around the motor museum at Beaulieu.

The line-up included models signed and donated by a host of celebrities including Pink Floyd drummer, classic car racer Nick Mason and TV presenters Quentin Willson, Vicki Butler-Henderson and Edd China.

Sir Stirling Moss donated a model of a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR for the record attempt.

Sir Stirling won the Mille Miglia race in 1955 with the car.
