The official world oyster eating record has been smashed out of sight in Northern Ireland.
Norwegian Rune Naeri managed to down 187 in three minutes - swallowing more than one oyster a second - at the annual Hillsborough Oyster Festival in County Down. Before the record had stood at 97 eaten in three minutes.
Officials from the Guinness Book of Records were on hand to authenticate Rune's feat.
After setting the new record, Mr Naeri said he felt "fine, wonderful", and proceeded to polish off a few pints of Guinness, which he said were the perfect antidote to a belly full of oysters. Looking forward to a late dinner he said: "I think I'll probably have something fishy."
Belfast man Jim Glackin, who beat the previous world record by eating 100 oysters during an unofficial practice run earlier this week, failed to keep up with the Norwegian. Despite managing to scoff 168 oysters he trailed in fourth against the international competition.
