Children and adults from Maldon and Witham have got their names in the record books.

Local group The BIG Sing took part in a Europe-wide sing-along to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gospel choir in the world.

The group, which also has members in Swanley and London, joined forces with the London Community Gospel Choir (LCGC) to sing ‘O Happy Day’ at the Royal Festival Hall.
