A Greek restaurant owner has broken the record for the world's largest kebab.

Costas Dasios from Patras made the pork kebab weighing approx 4200 pounds (1,850kgs) on a 1.73-metre steel skewer, according to the Kathimerini newspaper.

Around 150kgs of spices and 100kgs of salt were used to add taste to the kebab and a two-ton natural gas tank was used to cook it.

Mr Dasios said: "The city's poor will be the first to get a taste."
