Hundreds of people have gathered in dockland area of Belfast in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the largest human flower.

The bid has been organised by the Row on Row groups, based in east Belfast and the Shankill area, and is taking place to mark the end of the First World War.

For the record to be broken, 3,000 people are required to appear between 10.30am and 12pm on Saturday at the Titanic Quarter site close to the SSE Arena.

The current benchmark was set by a company in China in September 2017, when 2,567 set the record in the Shaoyang area.

Participants in the Titanic Quarter wore red and black plastic rain ponchos to match the colours of the flower.

It has not yet been revealed if the group were successful in taking the crown for the largest ever human flower.
