RECORD breaker Dean Gould is on his first national tour, visiting different parts of the country to show off his amazing feats.

Dean, 39, from Felixstowe, is the holder of more than 20 records - almost another record in itself.

His records include speed eating, stamp licking, pancake tossing, ball bouncing, winkle picking, coin snatching, and needle threading.

Now, he has been signed up by fast food company Burger King for a promotional tour which will see him trying to break his own coin-snatching record.

His current record for coin snatching, where he balances coins on his lower arm, flicks and catches them, is 383 ten-pence coins.

During the tour he is trying a slight variation and using one pence coins instead and is hoping to catch more than 400 coins.

Dean, who lives in Church Road, Old Felixstowe, with his wife Natalie and their three children, Adam, Amy, and Nathan, has been breaking records for the past 18 years, always attempting the unusual and the strange.

Last month he set another new record when he tried CD flipping.

He was invited to have a go by the Guinness Book of Records as a modern alternative to beer mat flipping and he caught 45 CDs, weighing just over one and half pounds.

He will be visiting Portsmouth, Woking, Norwich, Derby and Edinburgh during the week, staying in hotels and visiting a different restaurant each day to demonstrate his skills.
