Elaine is jigsaw champ

A mother has smashed the world jigsaw record in a bid to raise awareness of her sons rare condition.

Elaine Lewis, from Gatley in Stockport, shaved more than 20 minutes off the previous Guinness World Record for putting a special 250-piece puzzle back together.

Elaine's son Anthony, 13, suffers from Williams Syndrome - a rare genetic problem which causes learning difficulties.

The 47-year-old mother of two completed the jigsaw in just 14 minutes 58 seconds - under strict test conditions - and Guinness confirmed her as the new world record holder.
