A new world record by walking over 18 miles on broken glass

Nigel Jardine, 56, a man from Leeds, West Yorkshire, walked 1,060 metres (18 miles / 30km) in one hour around an octagonal circuit of glass at the Bageecha restaurant in his home town of Horsforth – breaking the previous record of 960 metres. He did that in aid of the charity, Action for Children.

Mr Jardine said: "I'm used to walking on broken glass but I suppose the customers at the restaurant weren't used to watching someone do it as they tucked into their meals." But he said later, the glass walk reflected a child’s response to abuse: treading carefully, avoiding pain, not wanting to get hurt.
