The group, led by Deborah Custance Baker, is spending the lockdown period attaching knitted triangles to the bunting for the Devon County Show, which is set to take place in August.

The bunting needs to be finished by May 8 to have a shot of claiming the Guinness World Record.

Deborah told East Devon News: ''The stringing together of the triangles is well underway, and it its going to look amazing.

''We were hoping to bring together all those who have participated in the record at Exeter Cathedral to help with the threading.

''However, we now recognise this almost certainly won't be possible within our time frame.

''So currently it's just me, affixing 32,000 flags onto eight kilometres of tape, each at the required two inches apart.

''It's extremely fortunate that time is something I have lots of at the moment as well as a reasonably tolerant husband.''
