Domino Show Fails to Break Record

An attempt to topple the record for knocking down dominos has failed - but the show was spectacular despite the disappointment.

More than 85 domino builders from 12 countries worked around the clock for eight weeks in the Dutch town of Leuuwarden to put the record attempt in place, which was shown on TV.

Around 80% of the dominos - that's over 3.6 million of them - had gone down, when the toppling stopped.

The world record was set last year when 4.07 dominoes went down.
