Today hundreds of people in Scarborough helped to smash the world record for the most sand castles by more than 100.
They built 683 sand castles in an hour – beating the previous total of 571 which was set last year by the people of Duncannon in Ireland.
Anne-Lise Rouse, a Guinness World Record adjudicator, said all who took part did very well. She added: “I’m really impressed. The weather conditions could have been terrible but it’s been brilliant – the sand is damp but it makes the sand castle last longer.”
