Well, they did it! On Tuesday morning on Horse Guards Parade, Brogan O’Brien and Carole Wilde, engineers from Arriva London, were part of the National Women in Engineering Day celebrations setting a Guinness World Record.

Eight hundred and sixty-four people jumped in the air and made a “high five” to achieve the record, which previously stood at three hundred. One hundred and fifty five organisations sent people along to the event, which was designed to highlight the enormous contribution women make to engineering and technology in the UK. All the participants received the following letter.

"Jump & High Five"

“Dear Guinness World Record Holders,

A huge thank you for attending and supporting the photocall and world record attempt yesterday morning at Horse Guards Parade which was part of our National Women in Engineering Day celebrations.

We absolutely smashed the previous record of 300 set by L’Orèal with over 864 people turning out, from over 155 organisations. Social media channels have been going crazy and we would love to see more of your photos so please do continue to tweet using the hashtag #NWEDHigh5.
