It's hard enough to parallel park at the best of times. Yet two brothers from the UK broke the world record for parking in the tightest of spaces - twice.

Alastair and John Moffatt entered the Guinness World Record book with just 13.1cm to spare between the cars.

The pair, from Gloucester, drove vintage Mini Mayfairs to beat the previous record of 14cm held by Ronny Wechselberger aka Ronny C' Rock.

John, 31, told This Is Gloucestershire: "When I broke the world record I was in shock."

His 33-year-old brother Alastair added: "The fact that we hold the world record together is great as we are very competitive with each other but John continually reminds me that he got it first."
