A plucky pooch has rolled into the record books after skateboarding under the longest human tunnel.

Otto the bulldog coasted under the legs of 30 people to earn the Guinness World Records entry in Lima, Peru.

Footage of the cunning canine shows him jump on to his board and skate through the legs, steering from side to side as he pushes himself along.

UK stunt driver Alastair Moffatt also clinched a world record when he performed the tightest reverse parallel park.

Mr Moffatt managed to squeeze his motor into a tiny spot at Brooklands Museum in Surrey with a handbrake turn.

"I am so thrilled that I was able to achieve a Guinness World Records title today - especially on Guinness World Records Day, it doesn't get much better than that," he said.

"A lot of planning, dedication and, of course, parking went into today's successful record attempt."

Around 650,000 people across the globe took part in the 11th annual Guinness World Records Day.
