THEY are supposed to be the vegetable of children’s nightmares, but on Saturday Warrington hosts a world record attempt to eat the most Brussels sprouts in a minute.

Around 20 competitors with forks at the ready will take on the global challenge at Orford Hotel on Gorsey Lane.

The current Guiness world record stands at 31 sprouts devoured in 60 seconds.

Money raised at the event will go to military charity Blue Apple Heroes.

It starts at 2pm. All are welcome.
