Sun-thing to Celebrate
Austria claims to have broken the world record in mass sun cream smearing at the Beach Volleyball Masters held in Baden, Lower Austria at the weekend.
As a protest against skin cancer more than 900 people applied sun cream at the same time.
The record is expected to be added to the Guinness Book of Records.
The cream action was started with 'ready, steady and cream'
270 litres of sun cream were used and for two minutes the volleyball centre court was packed full of people applying the sun cream.
The record up until now was 681 people who broke the record in Ohio, USA in summer 2011.
