    It actually included 600 tables, with 30 culture specialists setting up 1,800 place settings with decorations. The total weight was five tonnes.

    Organisers said their table was long enough to beat the previous Guinness world record of 1.036 kilometres set in the Austrian city of Scharding last year.
