8023801AS part of the fifth annual Guinness World Records Day, Anorak joined millions in doing nothing. Each year the world’s population swells, and a new apathy record is set.

Others, though, seeks other records. Manjit Singh, from Leicester, celebrates after breaking the Guinness World Record for the furthest distance to pull a double-decker bus with his hair, by pulling a bus for 21.2 metres, in Battersea Park, south London. Bus drivers do your worst.

Strike if you will. We have Manjit.

At St Pancras Train Station, London, a needy group of people hug each other for one minute. How times change. A few years so, before the Chunnel link hit King’s Cross, anyone in the area hugging for longer than 10 seconds was considered to be engaging unlawful activity, offering business to a punter, who had accepted.

Which brings us to a record our patron Old Mr Anorak, with furled umbrella, set on a tube train in 1974 for which, blessedly, no record exists. In pictures:
