delighted children from a primary school in Belper have helped to break a world record.

The 224 youngsters at Long Row Primary joined forces with children across the UK to smash the record for the most people singing and doing sign language at the same time.

They sang along to 1970s hit ‘I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing’.

Anna Zawadzki-Brown, a teacher at Long Row, said the latest number had smashed through the 100,000 barrier.

She added: “The children are overwhelmed by what they have achieved. It’s not every day you come to school and go home a record breaker.”

It will not be known until next month exactly how many took part, but organisers SignHealth said it knew the previous mark of 13,418 people had been beaten.

The school will now be entered into the Guinness World Records.
