THE hunt has started to find 260 outgoing fund-raisers to help break a Guinness World Record in Mid Devon, in an event set to be the largest of its kind.

Skydive UK, near Honiton, will attempt to take 260 people for a 15,000ft tandem skydive in just one day on June 21, the longest day of the year.

The record, which is currently held in Germany, stands at 251 skydives to take place over a 24-hour period and was set in 2013.

The event is being organised to raise money for the 50 participating charities and to celebrate 50 years of skydiving at Dunkeswell Airfield.

Full details and a list of participating charities can be found at or by calling 01404 890222.
