A man from Sheffield in the UK is taking Britain’s tradition of dunking biscuits into a cup of tea to new heights.
In fact Simon Berry, 24, is trying to set a world record, dunking a chocolate hobnob cookie from the end of a bungee cord and at a height of 70 metres.

Berry attempted the stunt to write his name in the Guinness World Records book on Thursday. He and as many as 600,000 people world-wide attempted to earn their entries.
Berry’s exercise in extreme biscuit and tea precision was accepted by the records book and will receive the title for the world’s highest bungee dunk.
