Ilkeston’s strongman John Evans is in the record books again after another head balancing stunt this weekend.

OAP John appeared at the Manchester Science Museum and balanced 26 plastic tubs on his head, six more than he has ever done before.

The last time he performed the stunt was on top TV show Britain’s Got Talent.

John said: “The event was a real success, the last time i lifted the tubs was when I auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent and people seemed to enjoy it then so I tried a few more this time.”

Representatives from the Record Holders Republic were at the event to adjudicate the attempt and confirm it as a new record.
