Bosses managed to muster 283 people in their pig-turesque courtyard overlooking the River Orwell to eat a free sausage roll simultaneously.

The event was arranged as part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the Suffolk Food Hall, which is located in Wherstead, just outside of Ipswich.

Although their efforts do not qualify for the Guinness World Records, marketing and design coordinator Nick Punter believes it was the first mass sausage roll eating challenge of its kind to take place.

“It went really well,” Mr Punter added. “There was a lot of laughter and a lot of children having a good time.
