World Record for Puzzle Solving

Jigsaw Puzzle Record
Elaine Lewis managed to complete a 250-piece jigsaw in an unbelievable 14 minutes, 58 seconds - more than half of the existing record. With official witnesses Councillor Pam King and Express editor Mandy Leigh looking on, Elaine was a hurricane of puzzle power as she fitted together an oval picture of famous Guinness world record breakers.

She overcame the previous record of 34 minutes proving that experience and dedication really is all you need. Elaine Lewis said: "I’m really pleased with the time. I could have done it again in that time and still beaten the record! My optician probably wouldn’t like me doing them that much - and certainly not my osteopath!" Elaine undertook the challenge to raise awareness of her son’s rare chromosome disorder, called Williams Syndrome and was able to raise more than £300 in sponsorship from doing the challenge.
