  Largest naan bread: Hampshire breaks Guinness World Records' record (VIDEO)

  
Hampshire, UK -- A huge naan bread made by firefighters has been confirmed to be the biggest the world has ever seen; led by fire officer Dave Curry, the team created a giant Indian bread, weighing 26kg (57lb 5oz) and measuring 3.79m (12ft 5in) by 1.4m (4ft 7in); the cooking feat, carried out at the Eastleigh Mela in Hampshire, beats the 2008 Guinness World Records' record naan, which weighed 9.5kg (20lb 15oz),
according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.
