Queen Elizabeth II celebrates 60 years as British monarch in 2012, and the celebration have triggered a burst of record breaking across the UK.

The Jubilee-themed attempts have records have already started as seen by the longest line of fanfare trumpeters at Wellington Barracks which took place last week, but a host of others are set over the bank holiday weekend.

Saturday sees Burnham-On-Sea beach hosting an attempt to beat the world record for most sandcastles built in an hour, with a target of 571 to better.

The event will be held to the north of Burnham's famous pier - with people of all ages being urged to join in the free event.

Meanwhile, organisers in the Somerset village of Cheddar are hoping to create the longest line of bunting which will stretch up to 4,500m (2.8 miles) through the village and up the region's iconic gorge.

The current world record of 3,427.94m was set in London on 13 May last year.
