James Bond Record Broken

Veteran stuntman Rocky Taylor, 64, broke a Guinness World Record by jumping a spinning BMW at speed through a 19ft 69in by 13ft 12in sheet of breakaway glass, the largest ever smashed by a car.

The very average looking stunt beat that set during the filming of Bond movie Die Another Day, on which Mr Taylor also worked.

It featured actor Pierce Brosnan driving Bond's Aston Martin through a 8ft 3.5in by 5ft 4.5in glass panel in the Ice Palace scene.

The stunt was recreated at the O2 Area in Greenwich south London to help promote Remember A Charity In Your Will.
