Guinness World Record set for the world's biggest disco ball
Could this be the world’s biggest mirrorball? The organisers of Bestival on the Isle of Wight certainly hope so. Nile Rodgers of disco legends Chic laid down the challenge to break the record for the largest mirror ball ever built, and a representative of Guinness World Records has been called in to assess the new attempt. But size is only part of the record – the disco ball has to rotate in the air for 5 mins at a music event where people dance. Slowly it is hoisted 12 metres in the air, and a team of 6 wranglers start it spinning.

Olympic Gold Medalist Jessica Ennis Gives Her Support to ParalympicGB
British Airways has teamed up with Olympic athletes Jessica Ennis, Louis Smith, Greg Rutherford and Zoe Smith who all give their messages of support to the ParalympicGB squad, coinciding with the kick off of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
British Airways created the video with the theme 'we are alongside you…' inspired by the definition of Paralympics games which many people are unaware of. Its origin is from the Greek prefix 'Para' which translates as 'beside' or 'alongside', as the Paralympic Games run in parallel to the Olympic Games.
