A STUNTMAN with an unusual taste for swords joined performers around the world to tackle a jaw dropping record attempt.

World Sword Swallowing Day saw tricksters gather at Ripley’s Believe It or Not odditoriums across the globe to complete the feat - and Blackpool was no exception.

The resort’s Jack Wise swallowed his sword at 2.23pm on Saturday - coinciding with the day’s date - and was joined by acts who performed in their home cities from as far afield as Copenhagen, Denmark, to Orlando, Florida.
