A jet suit pilot smashed his own speed record on Brighton beach this morning.

Richard Browning used a body-controlled suit powered by a jet engine to break his record by going more than twice as fast as he did in 2017.

Guinness World Records confirmed that he reached a speed of 85.06 mph (136.891 kph) while speeding above the waves by the Palace Pier.

In 2017, he travelled at 32.02mph record over Lagoona Park in Reading.

Mr Browning is the founder and chief test pilot of Gravity Industries, which designs, builds and flies jet suits.
