Hooter Of The Week

His fame may go before him, but it was still a red-letter day for 71-year-old Mehmet Ozyurek from Turkey when Guinness World Records confirmed that he possessed the longest nose in the world. No word of a lie, it measures and impressive 8.8 centimetres or 3.5 inches in old money.  

As noses grow with age, there is every chance that he will break his own record, but he has a long way to go until he noses ahead of Thomas Wedder. This Yorkshireman, who lived in the 18th century, had a snout that measured 7.5 inches or 19 centimetres. In my book, he wins by more than a nose.
