In an uncharacteristically organised move, 295 students yesterday broke the Guinness World Record for the largest mortarboard toss. Held to highlight the international element of London’s universities, the event at More London by Tower Bridge saw students from all over the world replicate the traditional graduation celebration. 

This is the 14th world record to be set in London this year, meaning that the capital is a significant way towards its goal of beating more than 20 world records.
