A team of gym members from East Sussex, England have smashed two Guinness World Records for the number of people inside both a classic Mini and a 2012 model.

The team of 28 flexible ladies crammed their way into a Mini Cooper at Potters Fields Park, London as part of the eighth annual Guinness World Records day.

CLASSIC MINI SQUEEZE

The team broke their own previous record of 27 people, which they set in 2011.

The ladies made full use of every inch of space available in the Mini, including the dashboard, footwells and even managed to squeeze four people in the boot.

As soon as they celebrated their first record the ladies dashed off to attempt a second record, by squeezing a staggering 23 ladies into a classic Mini. The team beat the previous record by two people.

More than 400 000 people around the world are taking part in record-breaking events for the eighth annual Guinness World Records Day, which commemorates the day in 2004 when Guinness World Records became the world’s best-selling book.
